A little about the star ingredient - moong dal!

Easy to digest, yellow moong dal is sourced from skinned, split moong beans . 

A powerhouse of nutrition, moong beans are a rich source of dietary fiber, proteins, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids.

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.

Blend and puree the ingredients to make a wholesome soup recipe with moong dal!

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.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
