Moong dal dumplings cooked in a traditional Gujarati curd mixture, Dapka Kadhi served with rotlas, green chillies and garlic chutney is a sumptuous and satiating meal worth a million dollars!

When making this dish, ensure that the dapka batter is sufficiently thick. First drop one dapka into the kadhi—if it floats up, it means it is perfect, and you can proceed with the rest. Else, adjust the batter by adding little more besan, or cook the dapkas in a microwave oven before adding to the kadhi.

Its a wonderful alternative to the fried pakoda kadhi,that is a staple in north Indian homes. As a variation I tried it with moong dal chilka and it was just as nice. Thank-you Tarla aunty!
