Gobi (Cauliflower) Kadhi

Kadhi is a dish that is made in various parts of North India. There are many versions of this dish like pakoda kadhi, gujarathi kadhi, rajasthani kadhi etc. This being our family favourite is made quite often at our home. This time I wanted to try something hatke than the normal. So I added added cauliflower instead of pakodas. My entire family and friends loved this version. Hence I decided to blog this one. Hope you all like it :)
