Kadhi differs from region to region, this special Sindhi kadhi is made by using tomatoes, a tangy gram flour based kadhi with full of vegetables. 'Kadhi-chawal' or 'curry chawara' is the most favourite dish among Sindhis. This is no onion-garlic recipe, so my mom loves it. It is really a yummy, delicious and flavorful curry; hope you like it.  

6 Medium Tomatoes
1 Medium Potato, peeled & cut into thick slices
50 gm Pumpkin, cut into 1/2" cubes
2 Drumsticks, peeled and Cut into 2" pieces
6 Green Beans, cut into 1&1/2" pieces
7-8 Okras, trim the both ends
150 gm Eggplant, cut in medium sized cubes
3 tbsps Gram Flour (besan)
1 tsp Fenugreek Seeds
1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
A Pinch of Asafoetida
10 Curry Leaves
3 Green Chillies (chopped)
1" Ginger (minced)
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/4 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tsp Sugar
2 tbsps Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves
4 tbsps Oil
Salt to taste


Boil tomatoes in pressure cooker with 2&1/2 cups water. Cook for 5 minutes. Let it cool normally. Remove skin from tomatoes and blend to make puree. Keep it aside.

Heat oil in a pan or wok. Add fenugreek seeds, saute for few seconds, then add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and asafoetida. Saute for few more seconds, till mustard seed crackles. Pour green chillies, ginger, curry leaves in it. Saute for 1 minute more.

Add gram flour fry for few minutes, till raw smell gone. 

Add tomato puree in it and give a nice stir.
