 Haldirams style roasted moong dal

roasted-moong dal
How many of you are a big fan of Haldiram style roasted moong dal? We all love this very much but since it is deep fried i buy it very rarely. Recently i came tasted this in a friend’s house and it tasted pretty nice. She told she didn’t fry and instead did in a microwave. I tried this at home the next week and it turned out quite well. Of course i agree deep fried one will be so awesome but this one was equally good. Try this guilt free snack for your cup of tea this evening.

Is it okay to use mustard oil in this recipe? Or do we need some other specific oil?

You can use normal cooking oil itself. No need for mustard oil

Can we follow same for chan as dal

I don't think you can replace channa dal. As it takes more time to get roasted. Also it will get digested easily if left uncooked.
