Pumpkin Kadhi | Falaari Pumpkin Kadhi

Pumpkin Kadhi is a super delicious and healthy pumpkin and buttermilk kadhi made with gluten-free buckwheat flour and minimal spices.

This pumpkin kadhi was a part of my falaari Navratri thali that I posted on Instagram in October month. Frankly, the kadhi taste like a sweet and sour balanced kind of pumpkin soup. We had this kadhi with barnyard millet khichdi and it was a filling and satisfying meal.

I have had made this kadhi a couple of times again when I am not fasting, with besan and some more spices and garlic. It tastes amazing either way and is a wonderful and comforting dish for any occasion.
