I love this all time snacks and when I saw the packet in the Grocerry Store I thought of trying this at home. And Then realised its so easy and quick to prepare. You must try this out.
1 Cup Mung Daal
A pinch of Eating Soda
Salt to taste
- Wash the mung daal and soak it in 4-5 cup of water with eating soda
- Keep it overnight
- In the morning wash the mung daal again and drain it over a cotton cloth
- Heat the oil in a pan
- Fry the mung daal in it over medium heat and again drain the oil from the mung daal on the paper napkin
- Mix salt to taste and serve when it comes to normal temperature
I fried the mung daal keeping the stainless steel strainer in the oil and putting mung daal in it. That helped me in easy picking of the mung daal, otherwise it gets little difficult to get the mung daal out of oil.
When the mung daal is put into the oil, there would be lot of big bubbles coming out from the oil. Gradually these bubble will reduce in size. When they are almost on zero size mung daal is ready to be removed from the oil.
