Richness of Green moong in the form of a Vada!
Green Moong Vada | Pacha Payiru Vadai, a perfect snack for a nice evening. For parties or for any potluck, we can make this wonderful snack and it would be a great hit. Normally we use channa dal for vada, but here we are using Whole Green Moong. We all know the nutritional benefits of Sabut (Whole) moong dal. Mung beans are high in important vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber. Sprouted mung beans contain fewer calories but have more antioxidants and amino acids.
So, Instead of making with channa dal, we can try making vada with green moong. Though we are deep frying, atleast we could make it little healthier by using green moong. If you like nutritional rich green moong, you can try the other recipes like Pesarattu, Sabut moong dal, Green Moong Khichdi, Green Moong Sundal, Munthiri Kothu, no onion no garlic methi moong dal, Green gram Kozhukattai.
We can serve coconut chutney or mint/coriander chutney or even ginger chutney with this Green Moong Vada. Whenever there is a party or potluck, i would like to make this Green Moong Vada as it is unique and also delicious and healthy. Try this yummy, crunchy and healthy vada and share your comments!
