Moongwadi Ki Kadhi

Moongwadi ki kadhi is a spicy and tasty curry made by cooking moong wadi (dried moong dal nuggets/dumplings) in sour yogurt, curry leaves and spices. It is a popular variation of kadhi cooked in states of Rajasthan and Gujarat in India. Since moogwadi are ready to cook, this kadhi is very quick and easy to make. It can be enjoyed with steamed rice, roti, paratha, bhakri, bajri or jowar ki roti or khichdi.  It can be carried for a potluck or picnic. Skip asafoetida to make gluten free.

We had a potluck dinner at my friends (Kavita Mahidadia) place. It was a nice chilly winter night. The menu was masala khichdi and kadhi. So this time Kavita had requested me to make a different kadhi such as using moongwadi or with moon pakodi. My husband insisted that we should do a video of making kadhi.

So then keeping in mind all the the requests, here is the step by step video of making the delicious moongwadi kadhi.
