Gujarati kadhi ( sweet and sour yogurt curry)

One more delicacy from Gujarat, Gujarati cuisine is incomplete without special sweet and sour kadhi of Gujarat . One of my favorite kadhi , every region in india has their own way of making kadhis like punjabi kadhi, Rajasthani kadhi , Sindhi kadhi and so on and I shared almost all of them in my posts. Even though i love the punjabi kadhi with pakoras, i also like the gujarati kadhi. Punjabi kadhi is made from sour yogurt and is thick. whereas the gujarati kadhi is thin and sweet as jaggery/sugar is added to it. i love both the versions.
