Green Moong Pakora : From My Mom’s Kitchen



Since my childhood Green Moong Pakora is one of my favorite snacks. Actually I didn’t like Dal (pulse) so much so my mom used to prepare these yummy, spicy, simple snacks of green moong so that I got the cereal nutrition along with a wholesome appetizer. 

Even today when after my delivery doctor advised me to take iron and protein in my diet my mom prepared me the snack and I really became nostalgic. Thanks to my mom for the recipe, hope I can do the same if my little princess also finds pulses not that savory.


Ingredients
  • Green Moong (gram) – 250gm
  • Fresh Coriander leaves – 1 bunch
  • Green chilies - 4/5
  • Garlic – 3 bulbs
  • Salt as required
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Mustard/white Oil for deep fry

Preparation
Let the green gram soak in water for the whole night. Next day make a thick paste of green gram, green chilies, coriander leaves and garlic in mixer grinder. Add sugar and salt to taste in the paste.
