Vati Dal Na Bhajiya / Crispy Lentil Dumplings / Fried Moong Dal Fritters – Quick Snack / Chat Items


When I was thinking for a quick recipe using lentils, I remembered this one which I saw long back ago in tarla dalal cookbook..And I decided to do it..This is such a quick snack which you can make in no time.Actually in my style it is such a easy peasy recipe..




It calls for minimal ingrediants, but the taste is maximum..It has a crispy exterior and fluffy interior..You can have it with ketchup or any of the chat chutneys..You can check recipes of that here, here and here..



This is my DAY 5 recipe for BM which falls in the theme Seven days of Delicious Dals…. So hope you like it and I will be back tomorrow with a new recipe..

Ushnish Ghosh said...

Dear Arthi
How are you? back in India , i am going through missed blogs. I love Mung dal fitters. The use of Dhania seed is a great idea, I must try it ASAP. Can I add 1 tbsp of rice flour? One of my southern foodie friends had advised to put a dash of rice flour in Medu Vada mix to make it surface crispy. Shall I add here too? I normally dont change original recipe in my 1st attempt and need your permission to do so..ha ha
Have a nice weekend

Aarthi said...

@Ushnish..Yes u can add rice flour, it will give u a nice crispy exterior..Good Luck

Gayathri Kumar said...
