Moong Dal Mangodi is a pakoda or wadi like snack made with a batter of soaked and spiced moong dal. The batter is piped out as small pieces, sun-dried and preserved in airtight containers.

On cold winter days in dessert regions like Rajasthan when fresh veggies might not be available, these tasty and nutrient-packed mangodis are deep-fried and added to dishes like dals, pulaos and even subzis like Mangodi ki Dal , Palak Mangodi , Papad Mangodi ki Subzi and Methi Mangodi . Mangodis are not only handy but also super-tasty!
