Aromatic, spicy and flavourful, but very kid-friendly, these Moong Dal and Whole Wheat Flour crispies make a wonderful snack to serve to guests attime of festival or to send in your kids’ tiffin box. Its a protein pack option for sudden hunger. It can be a Best Partner for a cup of Hot Tea/Coffee. One can enjoy this tasty crunch with simple Dal-Rice too.


There are some variations possible in this delicious crispies. One can add Chopped Coriander, spinach to add some more flavour and health . One can also add Black Sesame seeds to enhance the look and flavour.

I generally use Left over boiled Moong Dal / yellow split lentil /green split gram without skin. One can use even tempered Dal. But make sure its a plain one, or you have to remove eatables like tomato, curry leaves or green chillies from it before kneading dough.

Always fry on slow to medium flame. Frying on high can lead to half cooked or uncooked outcome.

    Hi Ruchi, thank you for the interesting recipe! The boiled moong dal means pressure cooked moong dal? Like a bit runny/ watery? The moong dal in your first picture looks like moong dal was boiled in water and then strained to remove excess water and then grinded, is that correct? Can you please clarify? I would love to try out this recipe! Thanks again!

    1. Hey hi amy.. i have soaked the dal first and cook in pressure cooker with minimum water just for 1 whistle then allowed it to cool. When you cook with less water it wont be watery.

      Thank you so much for interest..


    1. Hey hi , so glad to know that you like recipes and trying too.

      Ya you can bake these crispies. Bake on 170C for 8 to 10 mins. Mostly it should be done by this time. Still as I always says , each oven works differently , so check accordingly.

      Thank you
