Meet my favorite soup of all time. Kadhi is similar in texture to cream of ____ soup, but with no cream, and better. All you need to make it are yogurt, chickpea flour, and spices. But don’t let the simplicity fool you: Kadhi is both deeply comforting and insanely complex in its flavor, like a cozy blanket draped over a hot bowl of white rice. And my mom’s recipe, unlike the liquidy, mild versions I’ve been served at restaurants, is thick, rich, and spice-forward, with a pleasant tanginess at the end. I absolutely love the strong peppercorn flavor in this dish, but if you don’t like peppercorns, feel free to nix them or cut the amount in half.
