About Naal Badiya Recipe:

Uttarakhand's famous lip-smacking Naal Badiya recipe is now yours! Prepare this simple yet flavourful dish at home for an authentic, healthy meal.

Badis or Vadis are dried dumplings made of lentils and other locally available vegetables. These are prepared traditionally in large batches and sun-dried for longer storage. Badis are mostly found in Rajasthan, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand. Because of their limited access to fresh vegetables in the desert, sun-dried Badis made into mouth-watering curries were the best source of nutrition.

If you are a fan of Badis, you must try the Naal Badiya, a traditional Uttarakhand recipe made with locally available Naal Badis.

Naal Badiya is made using the hollow stem of the taro plant. The stem is cut, cleaned and coated with a spiced urad dal batter and dried in the sun. The next day, it is cut into circular shapes and dried until it is entirely free of moisture. This Badi is made into rich curries and gravies and relished with plain steamed rice.
