Goan Sol Kadhi without Coconut Milk (Futi Kadhi)


New recipes at the dining table is not the only thing I have gained through blogging. Bonding with a whole new set of vibrant, food-happy friends is my greatest gain through blogging.

And new recipes through them is even more valuable :-). This is one such recipe. The recipe is from a very close Mad Scientist’s Kitchen and the kokum I have used came from a very dear Pumpkin Farm. And the toaster is a gift from Veena when we had met at the Citi centre mall sometime back.

Everything about this recipe is close to my heart. It brings back fond memories of our BM 25 Meet! And how we exchanged gifts, how excited all of us were and what a nice time we had! And I can never stop without mentioning Vaishali’s (and her whole family’s, actually) warm hospitality!

And yes, the kokum I have used is from Pradnya’s gift set. And I referred Archana’s space for the recipe.

So, raising a toast to all my BM friends!
