Mangodi(Badi) ki sabzi in pressure cooker – One Pot Recipe
Mangodi or badi are dried green gram dumplings. Just like pickles, papad, potato chips, semiya etc mangodi is another item, ladies in India make in advance and store for months. We do not follow the bulk preparation of such foods in our busy schedule these days but thankfully, everything is now readily available in Market.
You can find mangodi easily in markets. In the recipe posted below, I am using market bought mangodi (brand – 420). But you can use the homemade badi as well. I bet they would taste equally or more better!
This is a one pot recipe, so you dont need to roast or fry the mangodi in advance. The hot mangodi ki sabzi can be served with phulkas, chapati or naan and can be enjoyed in lunch or dinner once in a while. This is one of the popular dishes in Rajasthan and central India. It’s a quick and rescue recipe as well for the lazy times and when you do not have any veggies left in your refrigerator! 😉
