Keto Spinach Kadhi Soup Recipe

Chilly winter with endless torrential shower and a beautiful snow day were some of the highlights of recent weather in Houston. And this cold temperature makes me crave for a bowl of soup or something warm like this Indian yogurt soup or kadhi. And now I have a Keto version of it. Yes, it’s my Keto spinach kadhi with loads of flavor featuring a melange of spices and herbs, and that quintessential Indian tadka.

Keto spinach kadhi is not like any other. It has full-fat coconut yogurt, because I made a vegan version of it. I also made a full-fat Greek yogurt version. Both the recipes were successful and to my surprise, very close to the original recipe’s flavor profile.keto spinach kadhi

The green hue of this soup comes from the spinach, which is washed, blanched and puréed with yogurt and herbs. I love to use baby spinach for this recipe. I use half a cup of blanched baby spinach with 3/4 cup to 1 cup yogurt depending on how thick the yogurt is.

Ginger and green chilies add a mildly hot flavor to this spicy yogurt soup or keto spinach kadhi soup. Go easy with the herbs if you don’t want a robustly hot dish. I like mine a bit hot and mildly spiced.

And in the end, I love to add an Indian tadka with ghee or coconut oil infused with cumin and paprika or cayenne. That’s it! The recipe doesn’t need much effort, as I told you earlier. It’s simple, mouthwatering and fully satisfying.

Sometimes, I top the soup with sautéed spinach and garlic, and a dash on heavy cream or coconut cream before serving. The soup is mildly tangy and spicy. Add a dash of sweetener if you want to. But I like the tangier version more.
