Methi Mangodi - मेथी मंगोड़ी (Sun Dried Dumplings of Dry Fenugreek Leaves and Split Green Lentils)

Hello friends,


Here is another form of Mangodi that we make at home. Very easy and same method as before. Please check the link for the plain mangodi.



This goes to my own event Think Spice: Think Fenugreek which is a brainchild of Sunitha. Please do send your entries too.



Methi Mangodi - मेथी मंगोड़ी (Sun Dried Dumplings of Dry Fenugreek Leaves and Split Green Lentils)




Ingredients
Peeli Moong Dal (Split Green Lentils) - 1 cup (Washed and Soaked for 2 hours)
Kasoori Methi (Dry Fenugreek Leaves) - 2 tbsp, crushed between palmsHeeng (Asefoetida) - 1 pinch
Salt - as per taste
Preparation



  • Coarsely to fine grind (it shouldn't be like a paste but not very coarse either) washed and soaked moong dal. Mix salt, heeng and kasoori methi to it. 
  • Now, take a plastic sheet or a plate or anything you can put in son and dry your mangodis in (grease them lightly, so that when dried, mangodis can come out easily). 
  • Now, take a small spoon or using your hand pour the moong dal mix on it in small quantities (as in pic). 
  • Let them sun dry for 1-2 days till they are completely dried up (you will know when) In the hot summer of Southern California, it only took me about 12 hours (over 2 days period) to dry them. 
Serving
Store them in air tight container. This is mixed with different ingredients to prepare curries, kadhi (yogurt gravy soups) and even pulao (pilaf). I will post another recipe made with mangodi soon :)


That's all for now. Take care till next post.

Priya (Yallapantula) Mitharwal said...

Suma, thanks for leaving comment on my "methi mangodi". You do get regular "moong dal vadis" in the market, but I have not seen these methi ones as this is just my twist to it ;)

simply.food said...

This is a new one to me I have never used this kind of dried mangodi before in my cooking.

Suma Gandlur said...

Priya, meeru pesarapappu use chestara deeniki? I would like to give it a try this summer.

Jayashree said...

This is my first visit to your blog. You have a lovely space here. The mangodis sound delicious. A quick question....should I just drop in thick spoonfuls of the batter or should it be spread out as a thin circle?

Sushma Mallya said...

sounds interesting, have never heard of this but would love to try it out soon...
