You are sure to enjoy this scrumptious chaat made with healthy non-fried moong dal pakodis. Absolute joy with no guilt attached!
Here, the pakodis are cooked in a different way on the tava instead of deep-frying them. Thereafter, a splash of curds and chutneys add a flavourful touch to the pakodis, transforming them into a yummy chaat.
We have used a small amount of sweet chutney in the Non-Fried Pakodi Chaat, but you can avoid even that if you want. The green chutney, spice powders and pomegranate are good enough to give it a taste that will please any chaat lover.
Apart from the fact that this snack is non-fried, the green moong dal and curds increase the protein content too, making it a nutritious treat that you can enjoy joyfully!
