Moong Dal Bhajiya, also known as Moong Dal Pakora, is a popular snack from the Indian subcontinent. Made from split moong lentils and a variety of herbs and spices, these deep-fried fritters are often enjoyed hot, with a side of sweet or tangy chutney. They are a popular street food and are also commonly served at festivals and celebrations. These crispy and crunchy pakoras are not only delicious but are also a good source of protein.
