Ingredients of Moong Badian
186g yellow split mung beans (moong dal)
125g shredded spinach, trimmed and washed or substitute 2 tbsp frozen chopped spinach, squeezed dry
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh coriander leaves (or substitute 2 tbsp dried coriander leaves)
1-2 green chilli peppers, seeded and thinly sliced
1/8 tbsp baking powder
3/4 tbsp salt
Peanut or corn oil
Method of preparing Moong Badian
The dal is first washed and a paste is made from it.
When ready to fry the dumplings, the remaining ingredients are added and stirred except for oil, into the paste. Care should be taken while blending the batter as over blend can make the batter dense, which in turn will make the dumplings hard and chewy.
Heat oil in a kadhai and cook in low temperature.
These yummy pakodas are usually served hot accompanied by pudina chutney
or dhania-pudina chutney. These fragrant, spongy and mellow-flavoured Moong Badian can be followed by a main dish containing plenty of spicy sauce. They are particularly good when succeeded by a vegetarian main dish, such as cauliflower, green peas and potatoes in spicy herb
sauce, round gourd in fragrant gravy, or green peas and Indian cheese in fragrant tomato sauce.
