Buttermilk Soup - Kadhi
I've tasted all the versions of Kadhi..and I enjoy them all..The best combination of Kadhi is with Onion Pakoda or Onion Fritters. But really when it comes to cooking...I'm very experimental...I have my own version of kadhi..which tastes good as well.. Basically its a concoction of all the above types....:)
