Today's recipe is nothing new, but the fact that I made it is extraordinary. I was craving for some Kadhi Gole and decided I would make it.
Obviously, I am a dufoos at innovation. I had to resort to an online recipe blog. The original recipe is found here. Do hop there for great maharashtrian recipes. I have tried some from there.
Coming to what and how I made it. I am really bad at accurate measurements, hence skipping them. I usually eyeball the amount and generally (thankfully) turns out fine.
Ingredients for the kadhi
Garlic - I am lazy so I used GG paste
Cut Green Chillies
Ingredients for the gole
Chana Dal soaked for 3-4 hours
Garam masala- a tiny bit
Method for the kadhi
Make a paste of besan and water and add this to the buttermilk. I even added the turmeric at this point because I tend to burn the turmeric in the tadka.
Heat oil in a kadhai
Add mustard seeds. Add jeera, hing, green chillies, curry leaves, ajwain and methi seeds once the mustard seeds start spluttering
Fry for 30 seconds and add the buttermilk mixed with besan paste
Add Salt and sugar according to taste
Keep stirring till it starts boiling
Let it simmer for 2-3 mins on low flame
Making the gole
Add the balls into the simmering kadhi for 4-5 minutes, so that they soak up all the wonderful flavours
Serve hot with chapati, or enjoy with steamed rice
