Earlier in my grand mom times, badiya or
mangodi or dried gram dumpling were made at home in large quantities. Whenever
they were planned to made this dumpling, full family comes together and made at
one place. It was really fun and enjoyable but now-a-days because of busy
schedule no one has time to make mangodi at home. For mangodi, you can use any variety
of lentils as yellow gram, green gram, chickpeas and more. This time I prefer
to use yellow gram dumpling.
