Moong Dal Fry–Microwave Method–Guilt free Snacks

Want a healthy snack that you can munch guilt free??? So in perfect for holidays or for watching TV.. Moong dal / Paasi Parupu is a healthy dal which is easy to digest but loaded with proteins.. Ask a person with fever or stomach flu or people who have just delivered, paasi parupu (moong dal) will be part of their diet as it is easy to digest, loaded with proteins and so healthy. I have heard that it also helps in healing the wounds.. There are so many items that we make with this dal. Some are -. This is a different one with it being a snack which is so similar to the fried one. I have the Moong Dal Fry recipe here which is a very famous snack. I got the idea from here to make the similar moong dal fry without actually frying it.




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)
Asafetida - 1/8 tea spoon



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!!!
