Moong dal fritters or pakoras are fried snacks made with yellow split lentils paste combine with spices, onions and mashed potatoes. It’s very tasty and crispy snack and the best way is, to serve with green chutney in rainy season. Even you can enjoy and serve this snack during festive time. 





For this recipe, you have to wash and soak the dal in water for atleast 2-3 hours to get smooth paste. After that mix the mashed potatoes, spices, herbs and onions and fried them in small batches. I love these types of snacks with my fav TV shows. It takes only few minutes to cook and love to eat with mix of green chutney and imli chuntey and hot cup of tea.
