Fariyali Kadhi

Fariyali Kadhi is a curry which is cooked with ingredients that are consumed while fasting. Yoghurt and amaranth flour combine to make this a delicious curry.

Fariyali Kadhi makes an ideal fasting meal along with Samo Rice or Rajigiri ki Roti. It can be enjoyed while one is fasting on festivals like Mahashivratri, Ekadashi and many more festivals where the Hindus fast. Upwas or Vrat are the other two terms for fasting.

As a kid, I used to fast along with my grandmother, but I don’t think I have ever fasted after getting married. When I prepared a Fariyali Thali I wondered how it would taste, but I must tell you it was absolutely delicious. The Kadhi tasted exactly like the Gujarati kadhi that we normally make. The sweet and sour kadhi pairs very well with Khichadi. For this Thali, I served it with Rajgiri Paratha, which is a treat by itself.

While cooking fasting food, we should use Sendha Namak and not regular salt. We cannot eat grains, the meals have to be vegetarian as well as satvik, where onions and garlic are not used.

Well, even if you are not fasting, you can still make the kadhi, it is totally on the Gujju lines and you are sure to enjoy! Enjoy the kadhi today and I will come back tomorrow for yet another Fariyali recipe. Yes, you guessed right I am posting all Fariyali Recipes this week.

  1. I have always been fascinated with the fasting recipes that are shared. I never fast and the fasting culture is different in southern states…I do have some dishes saved up for this occasion. Your kadhi sounds excellent and easy to make Vaishali.

  2. It is actually a challenge when there are restrictions while fasting and I love how food created for that particular time is very diverse and filling… This feels like a nice light soup for a fasting tummy… Simple yet highly flavorful…

  3. Wow! Such a simple one with amazing flavors. Vrat ka khana is a new concept for me and came to know of it about 7-8 years back. As Valli mentioned, fasting routines and habits are slightly different in the South.
