Here is a crunchy-munchy chatpata snack that is sure to make you drool! A coarse batter of moong dal and rice is combined with crunchy veggies like spring onions and a dash of garlic paste to lift the flavour.

The batter is deep-fried to make crisp, golden-coloured fritters that none can resist. Each crispy bite leads to a soft and textured centre, which is bursting with the spiciness of chillies, onion and garlic.

You need to make sure the batter is coarse and fry it on a medium flame till the fritters are super crispy. It is also essential to serve the Moong Dal and Rice Mini Pakodas immediately as it tends to get hard and chewy after a while.

You can also try other pakodas like the Cabbage Pakoda or Moong Dal Pakoda .

These crunchy pakodas are just so good, I made them last evening when it was pouring with hot soup and a salad and my family enjoyed it.
