How to make Mangodi ki Kadhi

Pour 2 tsp oil in a frying pan(kadhai) and heat, put Moong Dal Mangodi in hot oil and fry till it turns light brown. Take out fried Mangodi in a plate.

To make Kadi

Filter gram flour and keep in any utensil.
Churn the curd then put it in a utensil, mix curd and gram flour till they blend in completely and become a homogeneous mixture. Add 1.25 litres or 6 cups of water in gram flour mixture. The mixture needed to make Kadi is ready.

Heat 2 tbsp oil in a frying pan, put Heeng, Jeera and Methi in hot oil. After Jeera and Methi are roasted add turmeric powder, green chillies, red chillies and ginger. Put fried Mangodis in these spices along with 1 cup water, cover and cook on a low flame till Mangodis turn soft.

After Mangodis are cooked, put the gram flour mixture and stir till it comes to boil(cook on a high flame so that Kadi comes to boil quickly). Add salt after Kadi comes to boil. Lower the flame, now allow Kadi to cook on a low flame for 15-20 minutes. Stir Kadi with a spoon every 3-4 minutes. You will see Gram flour Malai all over the surface of the Kadi. Kadi is ready. Do not forget to make rice along with Kadi, as the two taste awesome together.

Take out Kadi in a bowl and garnish with green coriander or heat 2 tsp oil in a pan, put little Jeera in hot oil. Turn off the gas, now put very little red chilly powder in this oil and pour it this Tadka over the Kadi as garnish. Serve hot Kadi with rice, chapati or parantha.
