Moong Dal Fry

Moong Dal Fry is an easy snack that tastes best when served in room temperature. It can be stored in an airtight container for a week. This is one of the recipes that I made on a guess and it was wonderful. Adjust salt and chili powder to taste. Also ensure that excess oil is removed for it to taste good.

Paasi Parupu / Moong Dal – 1 cup
Chili Powder – ½ tea spoon
Salt – Less than ½ tea spoon
Asafetida – A pinch
Curry Leaves – 2
Oil – 2 cups + 1/2 tea spoon
Soak the dal for 8 hours
Strain the water and then spread the moong dal on a cloth (veshti or cotton towel) for 20 minutes
Heat 2 cups of oil in a pan
Add the dal to the oil and fry them till golden color
Remove the dal from oil (Use a tea filter for this purpose)
Put the fried dal on a paper towel to remove the excess oil
Add salt, asafetida and chili powder to the fried dal
Add 1/2 tea spoon oil and fry the curry leaves
Add the fried curry leaves to the dal mixture
Now the Moong dal fry is ready to be served!
