Wadis are made out of lentils and spices and are sun dried. They are meaty in texture and taste,  and an excellent vegetarian option. Plus are vegan and gluten free, great additions to Rice, soups, pasta and more. The Wadi I am using today for my recipe are made by my mom. These wadi are made using Urad daal and are available in most Indian grocery stores.
