Paasi Parupu / Yellow Moong Dal - 1 cup
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tea spoon
Red Chili Powder - 1/2 tea spoon
Salt - 1/4 tea spoon (adjust to taste)

Soak the dal for 6 hours or overnight
Drain the water completely
To a microwave safe bowl or plate, add the drained dal
Add all the spices to the dal and mix well
Microwave it for about 15 - 18 minutes
Every 3 minutes, take it out of the oven, break the lumps and stir to cook evenly
Also check during the last few minutes to ensure they are not over done..
When it is crunchy, it is done.. Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature
Store in an airtight container and enjoy with tea / coffee or as is!!!
