This is a wadi made from wheat flour or roti/chapati/phulka dough. It quite often that we have left over roti/chapati/phulka dough that is going black in the fridge. This is when in Sindhi's they make the mukandar wadi, and make a curry out of it. I have shown the basic way of making it, you can use any left over dough, add onions, green chilies and any kind of masala to it.



Ingredients

For the Wadi
1/2 cup left over roti/chapati/phulka dough, you can make fresh too if you want.

For the Gravy
1 onion, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
2 potatoes, quartered
1 green chilies, chopped
1 inch ginger, grated
2 tbsp curds
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste
coriander leaves for garnish.

Method

  1. Make a round disc of the dough.
  2. Place it in a pressure cooker and cook it for about 10 minutes, around 3 whistles. (how rice is steamed in a pressure cooker, if you do not have the vessel for it, place 1/2 cup of any dal in the bottom , keep the dough on top, add water and steam). If using a steamer, steam it for 10 minutes.
  3. After steaming the dough would have become hard, cut it into cubes and deep fry them.
  4. Heat some oil in a pressure cooker, add the chopped onions. Fry them till they are golden brown.
  5. Add the coriander powder, red chili powder and turmeric powder, cook for a minute.
  6. Add the tomatoes and cook till the oil separates.
  7. Add the curds, potato, wadis and salt.
  8. Add water to cover the contents and give 2 whistles or till the potatoes and cooked.
  9. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with rice or heida wara chawara (turmeric rice)

Thank you so much Cham, Dhivya, Siri, Divya and Saswati.

Swati - no it does not get sticky, when you steam it gets cooked and gets harder, it is basically steamed, i pour water in the cooker then place a plate with holes in the cooker keep the dough on top and give 3 whistles..:) I should have explained it better in the post.
