    1. That would be too sweet for us. Some of my friends add besan to balance the sweetness.

  3. My favourite kind of kadhi. When we were young, my mum would always prepare kadhi and the whole affair of puris, sabji rice etc to go with mango ras. She would add a bit of the mango ras to the kadhi.

  4. I love Kadhi and rice. I have never tried it with mango pulp. I am sure I would love the taste of the sweet mango and tangy yogurt.
