Mangodi Aloo Sabzi Recipe | Moong Dal Vadi Curry Recipe

mangodi sabzi

I have grown up eating and relishing mangodi ki sabzi. Mangodis are small dumplings that are made with moong dal and spices and dried in the sun. Once dried in this manner, you can store them for a few weeks easily. My mum would make mangodis from scratch but being lazier I prefer to buy them from other home cooks or stores. These dumplings are tasty and nutritious as they are lentil based and making a curry with potatoes brightens many of my lunches.

Here’s the easy recipe of mangodi sabzi:

This is so like the ‘Golavni’ we make at home!
Usually, we use besan to make the tiny golas, or laddoos to be added into the boiling curry, but I use yellow moong dal, spices and herbs and grind it into a thick paste. Then, I fry tiny bhajiyas out of it and then slide those into the curry. The curry is basically chopped onion, and gravy of coconut-chillies-ginger-garlic to which I add water and let it come to a boil. I also add tamarind pulp and jaggery and some garam masala. I think this mangodi ki curry must taste like my golavni! ?

It was nice to know about Golavni, Shilpa. I am sure it is similar to mangodi. 🙂
