This pretty crispy moong dal kachori has everything that you dream for in a monsoon snack. Since I am posting the recipe during the monsoon season, I am calling it as monsoon snack. But this lentils stuffed snack has all the wonderfulness to be a all season snack. This year the monsoon phase of my life wasn’t really like monsoon. Because unlike the previous years, the downpour was very poor and less. The heavy rain and umbrella weren’t part of my every day routine here in India. It was all dry, cloudy and some times sunny too. So this drastic less-monsoon rain situation wasn’t pleasing at all.
Weather has the power to redefine what we eat and what we crave for. Based on the weather conditions, some food take priority over the other. Like, moong dal kachori <= the rain, the snow and the breeze can insist for such deep fried stuff. But I love eating it along with a cup of hot tea or coffee on any evening. It seems similar to biscuit roti in appearance but the stuffing and taste is quite different.
The spicy stuffing using powdered lentils as the base is super delicious and the crispy exterior takes it all to the next level. The spices really work wonders in the stuffing. Because you can completely control the spices that get in to stuffing and you can make variations as your taste buds demand. In a air tight container it can even stay crisp for couple of days which is why I keep such snacks ready beforehand if I ever propose to have a get together. Also if you are anticipating some guests in a day or two, then this moong dal kachori can probably be the best option. Make it, stock it and have the pleasure of relishing with your loving guests. And as a last note: keep me informed about how it turned out.
