Jeermeeryaa Kadi is a very simple, yet equally delicious kadhi from the NKGSB cuisine of Karwar. For this dish, coconut which forms the base of cooking in this cuisine, is ground with just two spices and tempered with mustard seeds. This gives a subtle and flavourful Kadhi.

As rice is the staple diet of this community, lots of varied kadhis and curries (veg and fish) are made to be had with it. These are basically cooked using coconuts alongwith jaggery, corriander seeds, dry red chillies, udid daal, methi seeds, as per the demands of the particular recipe. Jeermeeryaa Kadhi is one such dish which is very simple and easy to cook.
