SPROUTED MOONG DAAL PAKODA
Kitty party snack idea
Sprouted moong daal pakoda is my favourite evening snack with a cup of hot tea 🙂 This dish is basically moong dall pakoda recipe, which I like with little twist of sprouted moong. Moong daal pakoda is the popular snack in northern India. We also call this recipe Moongoda/Moongodi.
The reason I like this recipe with sprouted daal is, sprouts are more healthy and high in fiber. I also try to avoid besan in this recipe, as besan is not good for health.
The reason this recipe top my list is this is easy to cook and healthy. Also, this is great snack if you are planning your kitty party near high-tea and want to have a party with just one snack and tea.I observed, this is mostly the case with old age people who don’t have domestic help at home and they do all on there own. So they don’t want to plan or have more than one dish. This one dish you can always reply on, you can never get wrong with this recipe. This is very good appetizer as well.
The Sprouted moong dal pakoda is crispy and crunchy in outer layer and softer inside. Takes very time to prepare and tasty to have. They have special importance during Makara Sankranti, the dish goes well with our Makara Sankranti theme special game. Lets see the recipe in detail-
