Moong dal / Split yellow gram / Siru Paruppu - 1 cup
Vegetable oil - for deep frying
Red chilly pwd - as needed
Chat masala pwd - as needed
Salt to taste
Wash and soak moong dal in enough water for 2 to 3 hrs.
Strain the water completely from the moong dal with strainer.
Spread the moong dal in a dry cotton cloth.
Allow it to dry for 2 to 3 hours.
Once the dampness is gone and the moong dal is completely dry...
Heat oil in a frypan.
Add the moong dal to the hot oil carefully. ( take care the oil is at correct heat otherwise dal will turn hard and not crispy)
Keep the flame in high and deep fry until it is crisp and starts floating in the oil.
Drain in kitchen tissue.
Mix salt and shake well. If you're with spicy taste, take salt, red chilly pwd, cumin pwd and chat masala pwd in a small cup and well.
Sprinkle the spice mixture over the fried moong dal and shake well.
Homemade crispy delicious Fried Moong dal is ready.
Enjoyy with your steaming hot cup of chai..!
