Mangodi Ki Sabzi/ Yellow Gram Dumpling Curry

Earlier in my grand mom times, badiya or mangodi or dried gram dumpling were made at home in large quantities. Whenever they were planned to made this dumpling, full family comes together and made at one place. It was really fun and enjoyable but now-a-days because of busy schedule no one has time to make mangodi at home. For mangodi, you can use any variety of lentils as yellow gram, green gram, chickpeas and more. This time I prefer to use yellow gram dumpling.

Today I want to share “Mangodi ki Sabzi or Yellow Gram Dumpling Curry” recipe with all of you. It’s a part of Marwari or Rajasthani region where people use homemade mangodi and cook it with curd and tomatoes as curry or gravy form. You can add potato, spinach or any preferable vegetable in this recipe.

In Marwari families or Rajasthani culture; they are prepared mangodi or yellow gram dumpling. For this you have to soak the yellow gram lentil overnight in water and grind them with little water, salt and asafoetida and chili powder till to smooth batter. Grease the polythene and pour the small size balls over the sheet. Let it dry in sun for 2-3 days. When dried completely, store them in airtight jar.
