Slow Cooker Gujarati Kadhi or Tempered Buttermilk Recipe

Kadhi is a traditional recipe from Gujarat region of India. It is very simple preparation of yogurt and some tempering which is very comforting food.  Kadhi is usually served with Khichadi (rice and daal preparation) or puranpoli (roti stuffed with sweet daal).  While cooking on stovetop Kadhi is should be cooked on low flame else it curdles and it also overflows. This makes Kadhi a very obvious choice for slowcooker or crockpot cooking. Here is the slowcooker version of traditional gujarati kadhi.
