I  learn’t to prepare this dish from my mother in law  and is one of the memorable dish to me .  This is also one of the tastiest and healthiest dish and an easy peasy one . Whenever there is excess buttermilk this can be prepared in a jiffy . You may also dilute curds ,whip and prepare this .  We may temper this kadi with mustard seeds , curry leaves , red chillies and hing or ajwain seeds  or with garlic and red chillies . My daughter likes this very much since she is a buttermilk lover . This is very good for digestion .  I like to have it piping hot in a glass .Goes well with rice too .
