how to make oatmeal delicious with moong dal

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.

She makes moong dal palak or spinach curry, which is simply out of the world - with key ingredients being yellow lentils, spinach, ginger.

Anyway let's come back to the moong dal biscuit recipe.

Let's see what we need for dhal biscuits:


Ingredients


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 tbsp- olive oil
2 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 tbsp- 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:

  1. 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.
  2. Mix both flours and add baking soda and salt.
  3. Next, in a separate bowl, mix ghee with olive oil and jaggery powder.
  4. Whisk the liquid ingredients well until combined and fluffy.
  5. Now drop in the dry ingredients and start combining everything.
  6. Add sesame seeds.
  7. Do the ingredients come together? If not add water/milk/ curd water to bind the dough.
  8. Make a log and cover it with a cling film or aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  9. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  10. Preheat oven (microwave convection mode) at 170 degrees for 10 mts. This is my airfryer cookie recipe, so I used airfryer for the same. 
  11. Roll out the dough into a thick chapati - should not be too thick nor too thin.
  12. Cut into cookie shapes with a cookie cutter or whatever you have.
  13. 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.
  14. The brown tint is due to the addition of jaggery. If you use sugar, you will get a beautiful yellow!
  15. Enjoy a fresh batch of yellow lentil biscuits with a cup of tea or milk.
  16. Munch on these deliciously baked beauties and travel back in times - the flavor and aroma of moong dal is overpowering! I am loving these beauties.
  17. What about you? Do try this simple cookie recipe at home.

Sugarless Besan Ladoo : A Healthy Chickpea Gluten Free Recipe

besan ladoo Is chickpea gluten free? This is one of the most common question asked by few besan lovers. I have always been fond of besan (gram flour) ladoos.

This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos. Then the thought of giving a twist to these ladoos struck my imagination. The rest is history - the besan ladoos use just 1 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter) with no SUGAR.
