PALAKCHI TAKATLI KADHI / SPINACK KADHI IN BUTTERMILK / पालकची ताकातली कढी

This one is my fathers favourite. As a kid I remember my aai used to make it made frequently as my dad used to relish it and would drink it just by its own. At my in - laws place they are not very happy with curd or buttermilk as a component in a recipe. One fine morning occupied in my thoughts with a cup of tea suddenly I realized that I never made this kadhi at my in - laws place. Not feeling so good about it, it was decided that this was going to be made for dinner the same day. So here is my dad's and so is mine favourite Palakchi Takatli Kadhi / Spinach Kadhi in Buttermilk .....
