Lauki Wadi Tarkari Recipe (Bengali Style Moong Dal Dumplings & Bottle Gourd Sabzi)

Lauki Wadi Tarkari Recipe is the Bengali Style Moong Dal Dumplings & Bottle Gourd Sabzi that is cooked as a side dish to pair with rice or Indian flatbreads. I have used the homemade sundried badi made with moong dal to prepare this sabzi, and then deep fried them before making the tarkari. You can also stir fry the badi till they are cooked as well. And anyhow, we will also be cooking the badis along with the lauki pieces as well. Flavoured with panch phoran masala, this tarkari is a handy recipe when you have pre made badi's at home. Once made and sun dried, the wadis will stay good for about 6 months when stored in an airtight container.

Serve Lauki Wadi Tarkari Recipe (Bengali Style Moong Dal Dumplings & Bottle Gourd Sabzi) along with Mooli Raita Recipe (Spiced Yogurt Salad with Radish)Pudina Lahsun Laccha Paratha (Mint & Garlic Multi-layered Indian Bread) and a Bengali Style Cholar Dal Recipe.
