Sindhi Kadhi is a very popular, delicious, nutritious and excellent amalgamation of roasted gram flour, tomatoes and mixed vegetables. This Kadhi needs tomatoes in good quantity.

Keep on stirring on medium flame and roast till it turns light brown and starts emanating a good aroma. The gram flour should be get cooked properly and at the same time it should not be burnt. This process takes 8-10 minutes. Give full concentration on gram flour, don't shift your focus to other work, as slight shift of focus will spoil this recipe. If this process is done properly - your kadhi will taste excellent.

3. Now add water - be very careful at the time of adding water, as the steam is released and will hurt you, if you don't take care in adding water. ( I always use this type of container as we can pour comfortably)

4. Add water, stirring continuously so that no lumps are formed. Bring to a boil. Add  5-6 glasses water, as this much water is needed, as when we add vegetable the water will get reduced in cooking. add dry ingredients that is turmeric powder, red chilly powder and salt to taste.. 

5. When water starts boiling, add all the vegetables and cook on slow flame for 15-20 minutes so that all vegetables cooked properly.

6. When vegetables get cooked, add tamarind water.

7. Lastly temper with cumin and mustard seeds, Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds after it splutters, add cumin seed, hing and red chilly powder. 

8. Your curry is ready to serve with boiled rice..
