Badi Ki Sabzi

Moong Dal Badi is one of my favorites. I love the way my mom makes it. Its so easy to cook but I for some reason couldn't make it the way my mom does until recently. Badi is made of moong dal and so is enriched. I normally buy it from the Indian store but also have the recipe of making it from scratch if you want to. To make Moong Dal Badi click here.



1 cup Moong Dal Badi
3 1/2 cups water 1 tsp Ajwain
1/2 tsp Red Chilli powder
1 cup yoghurt, churned well
1 tsp Oil
Salt to taste

Serves 2-3


1. Heat oil in a pan, add ajwain and let it crackle. Add badis and fry on medium heat till golden brown.

2. Pressure cook this with water and salt. Cook till the badis become soft for about 20-25 min on slow after 1st whistle.

3. Add yoghurt and mix well.

4. Serve with rotis.


• The badis need to boil in a lot of water as they soak a lot when softening. This was what I was missing when I made them and so my badis turned out not so soft.
