Moong Bhaji

Last Sunday evening we were at home to watch IIFA awards on TV. Outside it was raining nicely. I decided to make Moong bhaji. Our all time favorite snacks, specially in rainy days. Moong bhaji with hot tea, is a awesome combination for this season. One should definitely try this combination in rainy days…..


Yellow split moong dal - 1 cup
Garlic cloves - 4-5
Green chilies - 6-7
Chopped Coriander - 1/2 cup
Ajwain seeds - 1 teaspoon
Asafetida - A pinch
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying


Wash moong dal and Soak it with 3 cups of water for 2-3 hours. Drain the water and grind the dal with green chilies, garlic, Ajwain seeds. Do not add water while grinding. Do not grind the dal to a thin paste. It should be coarsely grinded so that Bhaji will become crispy. Take ground dal in a bowl and mix remaining ingredients except oil. Heat oil in kadai. Put 1 tablespoon oil in dal mixture and mix wel. Now drop small balls in kadai. Fry it on medium flame till it turns to golden brown. Serve hot with Imli ki chutney and hot adrakwali chai.
