This is a quick and easy recipe of kadhi and takes about 15 minutes to prepare. Amaranth flour is added here instead of besan (gram flour) which we use in regular kadhis.

If you don’t have rajgira flour then you can make this kadhi with other fasting flours like water chestnut flour (singhare ka atta), buckwheat flour (kuttu ka atta) and arrowroot flour.

Also you can skip or replace any ingredient as per the fasting rules followed in your family.

The kadhi goes very well as a side dish with Sama pulao, Kuttu ki khichdi, sama khichdi, plain sama rice or Rajgira paratha, Kuttu ka paratha or Rajgira poori.

This rajgira kadhi is good for fasting as its easy to digest and is also cooling for the body.
