A classic recipe from the kitchens of Maharashtra, the Moong Dal Vadi Rasa is a tongue-tickling preparation of moong dal vadis cooked in a gravy of tomatoes, blended with onions and spice powders.
The rich flavour of the tomato-based gravy seeps into the vadis giving them a really nice flavour. Garnishing with coriander gives the Moong Dal Vadi Rasa an instant aroma boost, so make sure you don’t skip it.
It is very important to serve this Maharashtrian delicacy immediately after preparation.
You can also try other specialties from the region, like the Maharashtrian Pitla and Maharashtrian Amboli .
