Lagna (Gujarati Wedding) Kadhi

This Kadhi is specially prepared during Lagna(Gujarati wedding). The only difference between our everyday Gujarati Kadhi and this Lagna Kadhi is few ingredients and thickness. During Lagna, cook add banana into this Kadhi and also add cinnamon sticks, cloves and lot of other whole spices. In everyday Kadhi, we add some healthy roots such as Turmeric(pili haldi), ginger, mango ginger(known as amba haldi), pigeon(tuvar dana-if desired) and some other ingredients. To me, they are equally delicious.
