Dhai Khadi

The versatility of sour milk in Indian cooking just goes far beyond the imaginations of many.  It is used in salads in raita’s as a gravy and so much which I will uploaded later.  For now let us enjoy this version.  The main ingredient is sour milk infused with spices.  If you tired of dhal this is a delicious alternative
