We had the usual Ugadi festival dishes and had a wonderful brunch. Apart from the regular and customary dishes, we also made Moong Dal Vada. After the heavy brunch I was not game for anything, though I had planned on making something for the BM.
This was almost the same as the usual one I make with Moong dal, only difference was, this had the skin intact.
Whole Moong dal – 1 cup
Green Chilies – 3 long
Salt to taste
Oil for deep fry.
How to make Moong Dal Vada:
Wash and soak Moong dal for an hour. Grind to an almost coarse paste along with green chilies and salt without adding much water.
Heat a kadai with oil for deep fry. Pat down the batter into small discs and deep fry in oil
This made a delicious snack along with the Dal and Chitrannam.
