Taakachi Kadhi ( Gujarati way)

Chaas or buttermilk is known as taak in marathi . This kadhi is made from buttermilk . It can be made in various ways . But today I am posting the Gujarati version of this kadhi which remains my all time favourite. It tastes superb with khichadi and  achar or papad.

Ingredients :

2 cups....................sour buttermilk
2 to 3 tbsps.............sugar
1 tsp.....................turmeric powder
4 to 5 ...................cloves
1/2  inch ..................cinnamon
1 tbsp......................besan ( channa flour)
salt

For tempering :

Oil
1 tsp.............mustard seeds
1/2 tsp...........asefoetida
1tbsp...............curry leaves chopped
3 to 4................dry red chillies ( broken to pieces)
2 to 3 .............cloves
1 inch ...............dalchin ( broken in two pieces)




Method :

Dry roast cloves and cinnamon and crush them to powder.
Add this powder to the butter milk .
Also add all the other ingredients and mix well.

Tempering :

Heat oil in a  kadhai .
When hot add cloves , cinnamon, mustard seeds, red chillies, curry leaves and asefoetida (hing).
In the end add the buttermilk mixed with all ingredients.
Give one or two boils and remove from the fire.
This sweetish kadhi with the aroma of cloves and cinnamon goes very well with khichadi.
