OATS AND MOONG DAL TIKKIS

OATS AND MOONG DAL TIKKIS

Snacks can be made with health filled ingredients too! This very tasty and healthy snack is made using oats and moong dal ( Split Yellow Gram). It tasted great when had with tea in the evening. Served green chutney and ketchup as accompaniments.

This recipe is adapted from one of my favourite cookery experts, the legendary Tarla Dalal. 
I sent in this picture after I had prepared this dish and was delighted that they added it to their website for a few months.

I hope you will like this as much as we did.
