A batter of soaked moong dal perked up with spices and green chillies results in a delicious deep-fried snack, which is partly crispy, partly soft and partly chewy too. The Moong Dal Pakoda, with its unique texture, is an all-time favourite ware sold by the roadside food vendors of Mumbai. Part of the magic is worked by the combination of chutneys that it is served with, so make sure you include them in your serving plans.
