moong dal tikki recipe
Baking can be a real fun if you succeed in making what you think you can. Not only baking cakes, baking cutlets too is a fun and interesting thing. For me cutlets are most times a part of the meal along with rasam, so that my kids do not nag at the table. I just add whatever i think is healthy, no standard ingredients. i had these left over soaked green gram after making crispy andhra pesarattu. I used it up along with some aloo. If you have a kid who dislikes lentils to try this. They come out very crusty and tasty too. The best thing is not much oil is needed to prepare these moong dal tikki. you can even pack these for your child snack box.
