I’ve had these moong dal pudla in highlights for quite some time but I’m so glad to finally get them up on my website for you all! My favorite thing about this recipe is that they are gluten free, dairy free, nut free, soy free and just straight up filled with split moong dal! This recipe does call for a little bit of rice to help make them crispy but I’ve made it numerous times without, and they are still delicious.
I learned this recipe from my MIL, but it’s a very popular dish in Andhra cuisine known as Pesarattu so there are so many variations on it if you do a quick google search! We usually eat this for brunch, lunch, and even dinner if I want something a little light. They are especially great for toddlers and if you’re in the BLW stage- absolutely great whole food for babies!
We usually eat them with a side of cilantro chutney! I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you do make them be sure to tag me on @thechutneylife, share the recipe and let me know how you liked it! Happy Eating!
