No Fry Moong- Urad Dal Bhajiya

Posted by

Moong Dal Bhajiya’s are must with piping hot tea and that makes the rain more and more beautiful and your tummy happy. No, it’s not raining here but the cold weather is asking for a plate of garma- garam bhajiya’s and ek cup chai. I want to enjoy eating bhajiya’s without getting worried about the extra calories and fat. Which obviously means NO deep-fried, oily bhajiya’s..Huh..That’s tough. But I have a solution for that 😉 It’s time to take out my appe pan 😀
I love moong dal bhajiya’s/ pakodas but the oil absorbed in it. This time instead of making just moong dal bhajiya’s I added whole urad dal too and that cae out ASWESOME If you don’t want the deep fried oily bhajiya’s then just use the appe pan instead. In appe pan you can make the crisp and tatsy bhajiya’s with just few drops of oil.
I can munch on these bhajiya’s without any chutney or ketchup but mint-coriander chutney goes well with this bhajiya’s.
