My sun dried lintel dumplings are now ready to use ,  we can use these Vadi's in many ways . Today I am using it with aloo which is a popular name of potatoes in India.
For this I'll take four nice potatoes then I am going to peel them,cut them and pressure cook them in onion gravy with hand full of sun dried Wadis which will be ready in 3-4 whistles . Very simple yet tasty dish must try ...
