If we google fresh mangodis, there are hardly any post on this recipe. Most of the recipes are for sun-dried mangodis. I believe this recipe is from western UP or Rajasthan, I am not sure about!. But for sure, this is a very popular recipe on our dinner table. This dish is very light (if the dumplings are soft) and tastes good with roti or rice. On cold chilly nights this dish is a one pot meal like a soup with dal dumplings.
Dal Mangodis (Dumplings)
- 1 cup Yellow Moong Dal
- 2 tsp White Urad Dal
- 1/2 tsp Hing (Asafetida ) generous amount helps enhancing the taste
- Salt to taste
- Oil for deep fry
- Wash both the dals thoroughly with water and soak overnight or for 5-6 hours.
- Drain the water and grind dals with salt and asafetida. Try adding little water at a time (if needed ) while grinding.
- Grind it in to think smooth batter.
- Whisk the batter with hand or whisker for some time. The batter will become light and fluffy.
- Put the drop of batter in a cup full of water, if the drop is floating nicely the batter is ready to fry.
- Heat oil in a deep frying pan, take a scoop of a batter with wet fingers, and slide it gently in the oil.
- Fry both the sides on low/medium flame until golden brown in color.
- Remove them on the kitchen towel for some time to drain out the extra oil.
