This Maharashtrian Papdi and Moong Dal Vadi Subzi is a home-style recipe, but has an exotic feel about it because of the exciting mix of spices in it.
It is a traditional Vidharbi recipe that is best enjoyed with chapatis. An interesting combination of valor papdi and moong dal vadi is cooked with a tongue-tickling masala that combines a wide assortment of aromatic and flavour-packed seeds and spices.
It is interesting to note that the masala paste uses dry coconut (kopra) and not fresh coconut. This gives the subzi a unique flavour. Enjoy it hot and fresh with chapatis right off the tava.
