Since fresh vegetables are rare in the deeper dessert regions of Rajasthan, it is common to cook dals and subzis with dried and preserved vegetables or dal dumplings. Combined with the right amount of spices, and typically cooked with ghee, these transform into mouth-watering fare, as in the case of the Mangodi ki Dal. Here, moong dal mangodi combines with tomatoes, ginger-green chilli paste and some common spice powders, to give rise to an irresistible accompaniment for hot rice or rotis.
