Kadhi is one of my favorite dish. My Mom used to make Kadhi without using Besan or Gram Flour. I always used to have it with steaming hot rice and Ghee. Absolute Bliss!! I miss those days now.

I make different types of Kadhi and here is a variation to the normal Onion Kadhi. Absolute comfort food that make me drool any time of the day. I love simple food that is easy to cook ,yummy and healthy at the same time.

We should enjoy these simple pleasure in life.
