About Sindhi Kadhi Recipe

Sindhi Kadhi is a celebration of the authentic flavors of Sindhi cuisine, and it holds the position of being the most beloved dish.

Made with a rich blend of gram flour, tangy tamarind, and a mix of vibrant vegetables, this curry is a Sunday essential in many Sindhi households.

When I first posted the video of Sindhi Kadhi on Instagram, it received both negative and positive comments. Many people shared the variations in which they make it at home. Some insisted that it couldn’t be Kadhi without yogurt (curd), while others argued that it wasn’t the right way to prepare it.

Reading through the comments, I realized that there are numerous regional variations, and it doesn’t make one recipe right and another wrong. Each recipe is unique in its own way.

So, here I am presenting my unique version of Sindhi Kadhi which is close to the traditional recipe. Made after experimenting with countless variations, this recipe is the result of numerous trials and tastings.

Feel free to customize it and make it your own!

Difference between Sindhi kadhi and Punjabi kadhi

Sindhi Kadhi and Punjabi Kadhi are two different dishes with similar names. These are regional variations of the Indian dish “Kadhi,” but they are different in ingredients, cooking methods, etc.

  • Punjabi Kadhi is made of gram flour (besan) and yogurt (curd), while Sindhi Kadhi is typically prepared with gram flour (besan) and a mix of vegetables.
  • The main ingredient of Sindhi Kadhi is a mix of vegetables such as drumsticks, ladyfinger (okra), potatoes, cluster beans, etc. In contrast, Punjabi Kadhi is made without any veggies.
  • In Sindhi Kadhi, tamarind is used for adding tanginess, while in Punjabi Kadhi yogurt (curd) is used for a creamy and tangy flavor.

Sindhi Kadhi Ingredients

Mixed Vegetables – including drumsticks, cluster beans, ladyfinger (okra), potatoes, yam, tomatoes, etc. are used in the Kadhi. These veggies not only add a distinct flavor but also make it nutritious.

Tamarind Extract – adds tanginess to the kadhi and balances the sweetness, enhancing the overall flavor of the Kadhi.

Jaggery – adds a hint of sweetness to the Kadhi.

In a separate pan, heat oil and add cumin seeds. Add the fenugreek seeds, asafoetida, and curry leaves. Let it splutter.
