A moong dal curry is all you need with a couple of rotis, pickle, and curd to make a complete meal. I love yellow lentil recipes of my mom.

Anyway let's come back to the moong dal biscuit recipe.
Let's see what we need for dhal biscuits:
1 cup - roasted moong dal (dehusked green gram lentil - yellow)
1/2 cup oatmeal (or 2 tbsp more if the dough gets sticky) - just the video above to learn how to make oatmeal at home
2 tsp- olive oil
1 tbsp- ghee/unsalted butter/clarified butter
4 tsp- jaggery powder or sugar powder (please add more as per your taste preferences - I take less sugar)
1/2 tsp- baking soda
1/2-1 tsp- water or milk or curd water (I have used curd water)
Pinch- rock salt (or common salt)
Til/sesame seeds (optional -just for garnishing)
How to make oatmeal delicious with moong dal:
- Dry roast moong dal if you do not have a pre-roasted lentil powder. I washed the dal the previous day and then dry roasted it. Then it was time for grinding it into aromatic powder to be used for different moong dal recipes.
- Mix both flours and add baking soda and salt.
- Next, in a separate bowl, mix ghee with olive oil and jaggery powder.
- Whisk the liquid ingredients well until combined and fluffy.
- Now drop in the dry ingredients and start combining everything.
- Add sesame seeds.
- Do the ingredients come together? If not add water/milk/ curd water to bind the dough.
- Make a log and cover it with a cling film or aluminum foil or parchment paper.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven (microwave convection mode) at 170 degrees for 10 mts. This is my airfryer cookie recipe, so I used airfryer for the same.
- Roll out the dough into a thick chapati - should not be too thick nor too thin.
- Cut into cookie shapes with a cookie cutter or whatever you have.
- Bake or airfry at 170 degrees for 10 mts. The moong dhal cookies may take a couple of minutes extra. So just keep an eye on them.
- The brown tint is due to the addition of jaggery. If you use sugar, you will get a beautiful yellow!
- Enjoy a fresh batch of yellow lentil biscuits with a cup of tea or milk.
- Munched on these delicious baked beauties and travel back in times - the flavor and aroma of moong dal is overpowering! I am loving these beauties.
