For making kadhi, we have to prepare curd mixture first.
If you are making kadhi with curd or yogurt, whisk it well till smooth and add about 4 cups of water.
If you are using buttermilk then add 3 cups of water. Whisk well.
Make sure the buttermilk or yogurt you are using to make kadhi is sour.
Add gram flour or besan to the whisked yogurt/ buttermilk and whisk again so that there are no lumps in the mixture.

In a heavy bottomed deep kadai put 1 tablespoon of ghee.
Let it become hot.
Add the mustard seeds and let them splutter.
Add in cumin seeds and let them crackle.
Add in kadhi masala and mix well. Add in whole red chilies and curry leaves. Sauté everything well.
Next add in the yogurt mixture along with all the masalas mentioned in ingredients.
Bring to a boil and cook on low heat for about 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, you can prepare onions which we will be adding in the kadhi.
For that, peel off and slice the red onions.

Peel off small onions too.

Cut off the root part of green onions. Chop the white part of green onions. Reserve the green shoots.

Next, take 2 tablespoons of ghee in a separate pan and sauté sliced red onions and shallots.

Sauté them till they are evenly browned. This will take about 13-15 minutes.

Add in chopped white part of green onions. Sauté them for a minute.

By this time kadhi will be almost cooked.

Add in sautéed onions and cook on low heat for another 5-7 minutes.

After that Kadhi is done.

Garnish with chopped onion greens which we have reserved and some chopped coriander leaves.

Enjoy the hot and delicious kadhi with rice, rotis or paranthas!!
