When you feel like snacking on something, but also want to keep High Blood Pressure in check, try this delicious, nutrient-dense Mini Baked Moong Dal and Jowar Puri.
The ingredients provide ample protein, fibre and other heart-friendly nutrients, all in a low-fat, low-sodium package. The puris have very little salt, but thanks to the use of spice powders, you will never realise this.
Not only that, these puris are not deep-fried but baked for just 15 minutes. This reduces the fat content, thereby reducing the risk of blood clotting too. Store these crunchy puris in an air-tight container, to snack on when you are hungry, or to make chaats and other starters out of it.
- Blend the moong dal in a mixer to a smooth powder.
- Combine all the ingredients, including the moong dal powder, in a deep bowl and knead into a stiff dough using enough water.
- Divide the dough into 20 equal portions and roll out each portion into a 50 mm. (2”) diameter circle without using any flour for rolling
- Prick each rolled out portion with a fork at regular intervals.
- Arrange them on a greased baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°c (360°f) for 15 minutes, turning them once after 10 minutes.
- Cool slightly and serve or store in an air-tight container and use as required.
