i hate KADHI

KADHI..the yellow dish with basic smooth texture was never liked by me to eat...but it reminds me of beautiful delight memories of college...

i with my friends [[who love kadhi like anything..that they may also deny the free lunch treat]]..used to eat kadhi-chawal in one plate..fighting over the gulps..n having loads of fun on the dinning table, in the cafeteria.. it was then i began liking the kadhi..just as it was the moment when we friends celebrated togetherness...

..the unfortunate era was not over..my HUBBY also luvs kadhi..he did request me a lot to make but as i dint like it personally..i never tried to make it..

But now celebrating the FIRST QUATER together, i thought to experiment..n above all cherish memories..

Finally it was 29th Oct,2007...i made THE KADHI in the lunch....
