  1. For making Kadhi:
    • In a mixing bowl, whisk the yogurt until smooth. Add chickpea flour, ginger paste, green chili, turmeric powder, and salt. Mix well to form a smooth batter.

    • Next, add curry leaves and dried red chilies to the tempering. Stir them for a few seconds until they turn aromatic.
