Gujarati Kadhi

Thanks Gaya for this awesome and oh-so-simple recipe!
Ingredients: 1 cup yogurt 1 tbsp besan 3 cups water salt (to taste) 1/2 tsp turmeric 1 inch stick of ginger - grated 1 serrano pepper - very finely chopped Mix all of the above ingredients thoroughly to avoid lumps. Set aside in the dish you want to cook it in. For tadka: Oil Hing - a pinch Cumin - 1/2 tsp Akkha Dhaniya seeds - 1/4 tsp Cloves - 3 Cinnamon stick - 1/2 inch Curry leaves - 8 Heat oil in a small pan. Add the tadka ingredients and wait for the whole spices to splutter. Pour the tadka into the yogurt water mixture and bring to a boil while stirring continuously. Make sure to keep stirring while heating so that the yogurt does not curdle. To test readiness, look for an oily sheen to appear. This took about 10 minutes to appear. Now add 1/2 tsp sugar or 1 tsp jaggery. Garnish with 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves. Serve with hot white rice or eat plain!
