Preparing the Moong aur Mooli ki Chaat does take a bit of effort, but your taste buds will prod you to go ahead with the task, because of the assured excitement! Crisp and flavourful moong dal pakodis are perked up with not one but an assortment of exciting toppings ranging from sweet and sour khajur imli ki chutney and pungent radishes to soothing curds and peppy spice powders. Now, if that does not spell excitement to your palate, what does?
- Clean, wash and soak the moong dal in enough hot water for 2 hours. Drain well.
- Blend the drained moong dal in a mixer till smooth without using any water.
- Transfer the moong dal mixture into a deep bowl, add the coriander, green chillies, onions, ginger and salt and mix well. Keep aside.
