While living in Pune, we came across this dish called Shengdana Kadhi. I always wanted to try it out as we loved it! 

This Maharashtrian dish is basically made of groundnuts which are called Shengdana in Marathi. 
As you know apart from being so tasty, groundnuts have numerous health benefits. 

I have adapted this from the recipe for Shengdana Kadhi in my friend Vidya Baindur 's blog.

My husband and I love this Shengdana Kadhi which I make from time to time, served as an accompaniment with dishes such as  Sabudana Khichdi. 

  • Shengdana (Groundnuts),  1/2 cup
  • Boiled Potato,  1 (cut into pieces)
  • Cumin Seeds (Jeera), 1/2 tsp
  • Green Chillies, chopped, 2
  • Sugar, 1/2 tsp, or as per taste
  • Kokum 2 or Dahi, 2 tbsp. or Buttermilk, 1/2 cup
  • Salt, to taste
  • Coriander Leaves, finely chopped, for garnishing
For Seasoning:-
  • Ghee, 2 tsp
  • Cumin Seeds (Jeera), 1/2 tsp
  • Green Chillies, slit, 1
  • Curry Leaves, 5-6 

Firstly, dry roast the groundnuts for a few minutes till it changes colour
Allow it to cool, de-skin it completely and powder it

In a mixer jar, grind together the roasted groundnuts powder along with boiled potato cut into pieces, jeera and chopped green chillies, with water to a fine paste 
Remove this ground paste to a vessel.  Add as much water as you would need for a kadhi.
Add sugar, salt, kokums/dahi/buttermilk, mix well and bring to a boil and switch off the gas 
In a small tadka pan, make a tadka of ghee, jeera, curry leaves, and slit green chilli
Pour this seasoning in the boiled kadhi.
Finally, garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves
Serve as accompaniment to Sabudana Khichdi
