    A quick fix when short of time. And pretty healthy too. With turmeric, curd and other seasonings it's a yum dish.

    Not sure of the origins since I have eaten something similar in Rajasthan as well.

    Maybe ManISinJpr can tell more.

    I first had this as a kid when my grandma would prepare this.

    Really easy on the tummy and good for those having fever or an upset tummy.

    Directions -

    heat less than one teaspoon of oil in a pan.

    Add cumin seeds.

    When they start to crackle, add chopped onion.

    Add salt for taste, pinch of turmeric and a hint of Red chilli powder.

    Cook till onion turns brown.

    Turn off the flame and then add the curd.

    Mix and serve.

    Yum!!!

    This recipe is not (afaik) common in Rajasthan, and the one from Punjab which I absolutely love is of Urad dal which is skinned and halved, it is yummy.

    Dahi mixed with the recipe I have to ask..

    Yep exactly, yes they put mustard seeds and Asafoetida in this as well. Though I don't like that so much. I had something similar at a dhaba in Pokhran, hence the doubt on the origin.

    Nope, this is different from Kadi. This is more like a quickfix. Just read the instructions. Cooking this takes barely 5 minutes.

    Thats what it tastes like if you leave it for more than half an hour. But this is a few minutes of preparation time, few minutes of cooking time. Basically 'dahi' with a 'chhaunk', while 'kadi' is 'besan' in curd plus the 'chhaunk', 'pakode' being optional.

    Is this another form of salted yogurt! Wonder what condiments to go along with? Or is a stand alone in its own delight!
