Moong Dal Bhajiya/Pakoras or Fritters

Its pouring in Mumbai and my cravings for garma- garam bhajiya with adrak wali chai was already on its peak when I decided to keep aside my healthy eating idea and decided to stuff myself with some crispy and piping hot bhajiyas or pakoras. I love and also miss all the varieties of pakoras be it moong dal, channa dal, potato or onion made by mom and how much I enjoyed it with the green, tamarind and tomato sauce too. Moong dal pakora being one of my favorite is also very popular in Mumbai and is easily available with any street-food vendor. I love the texture of moong dal bhajiya, this deep fried bhajiya is crispy from outside, soft and porous from inside.

The moong dal bhajiya or fritter can be made very easily from the moong dal soaked overnight or 3-4 hours. I like the fried chilies served with bhajiyas or vada pav in Mumbai so I fry 2-3 chilies along with the bhajiyas to add more of the spicy punch. Moong dal bhajiya is a good tea time snack or appetizer option. I love to pair it up with hot cup of tea or coffee. Moong dal you can help you get some required protein too.
