Rajasthani cuisine is famous for its spicy and rich food. Due to the hot climate fresh vegetables was not easily available in Rajasthan during hot summer months so mangodi and sun dried vegetables are preferred to make curries.
Mangodi /bari are sun dried lentil cakes or nuggets,they are made by soaked and ground lentils and then few spices are added into it to give taste and flavors.These mangodis are made on a polythene sheet and then sundried for 2-3 days and then they are roasted and used to make subzi and kadis. we also use mangodi /bari in making- Methi mangodi Nu Shaak, Aloo mangodi ki kadi ,and Mangodi aloo matar ki tehri pulao.
This aloo mangodi curry is made thin like a soup ,but some also like it slightly thick ,depends on individual preference.This aloo mangodi subzi is best served with rice, aloo tehri ,khichdi and chapati.This is a specialty from Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.
