      Imagine it’s a fine Sunday evening, you are sitting by the window as it continues to rain outside and you wonder what if you had a snack that could go well with your hot cup of tea. This Moong Dal Vada is one of those dishes that would be perfect for such a situation. A delicious snack that you can have for Hi-tea or even in between meals if you ever feel hungry or just crave something savoury, th ... is dish is extremely easy to make as it only requires a few ingredients and the recipe too has just a few steps that are easy to follow. The two main ingredients needed to make Moong Dal Vada are Moong Dal (duh!) and Besan. Now, compared to other lentils, Moong Dal has one of the lowest calories, extremely light and very easy to digest. It is also packed with fiber, protein, folate and a number of essential Vitamins and minerals while Besan too is rich in fiber, protein and other nutrients, making this snack an incredibly healthy one. To add a bit of spice to this dish, we add a couple of Green Chillies and a touch of Cumin. This snack tastes best when paired with coriander chutney, tamarind chutney or even plain old ketchup but even without a dip, it tastes quite good. But before you can make this Moong Dal Vada, you will have to soak Moong Dal for at least 4 hours. You can even choose to soak it overnight as that might be easier.
