Kudhi – yoghurty curry

So this is an accompaniment that is somewhat addictive! At first sight you’d think it bland and uninspiring but pair it with the right curries and you will be surprised! Its great with my Potato Fry

Ingredients

500g pot of Natural Yoghurt
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp of whole cumin
8 curry leaves (not mandatory)

Method

  1. Pour the majority of the tub of yoghurt into a small saucepan. Reserve about 2 tablespoons or so in the pot
  2. Add the salt and sugar and stir will
  3. In a separate frying pan, heat the cumin until fragrant
  4. Pound in a pestle and mortar or grind up in your spice mill if you have one
  5. Add this to the yoghurt pan and stir it really, really well
  6. Put it on a low to medium heat and keep stirring it until its nice and warm – about 5-7 minutes
  7. You’ll find it will go much looser
  8. Keep it warm whilst you get the rest of your meal ready
  9. When you are ready to serve, add in the reserved leftover yoghurt, this will thicken it up again
  10. Add the curry leaves and serve

The idea is to pour this over vegetable curries, potato fry or plain basmati rice, you can eat it with chapatis/rotis/naan breads too if you like  – i’ll post some veggie curries up soon for you to start pairing and testing!
