Wadiyala Pulusu (Sun dried Lentil Crispies Stew)

Blogging Marathon# 32: Letter W Theme: A-Z Vegetarian Dishes of Andhra Pradesh Dish: Wadiyala/ Vadiyala Pulusu (Sun dried Lentil Crispies Stew) In Telugu, there is only one letter with the sound ‘va’, so for the letters V & W I didn’t know how to choose the dishes.

Mamidikaya Pappu (Andhra Style Raw Mango Dal)

Bonus Dish for Week 3: Theme: A-Z Vegetarian Dishes from Andhra Pradesh Dish: M for Mamikidikaya Pappu (Raw Mango Dal) This pappu for my first pick for the Letter ‘M’, but it fell off the regular A-Z Vegetarian dishes from A.P. truck because of various reasons. One reason was that I made ‘Nuvvulu-Mamidikaya pachadi’ for N and I didn’t want the same ingredient (mango) to be used in the dishes that I was posting on consecutive days. So for M I posted Menthikura pappu.

Bonus Recipe for Week 3 Theme: A-Z Dishes from Andhra Pradesh Dish: M for Mirchi Baingan ka Salan I made this very famous Hyderabadi Mirchi ka Salan to go with Qabooli.

I tasted this at a restaurant long time back and wanted to recreate at home. I used eggplant and mirchi (chilies) in this recipe, but you can use just mirchi too. Recipe is from Zaiqa.net.
