How to Make Mangodae (Mung bean fritters)

  • Soak moong overnight.
  • It is good to grind when the skin peels off from the moong.
  • In a blender, coarsely grind moong without adding water.
  • In a bowl, add the moong batter, finely chopped or grated ginger, pepper powder, chilli powder, finely chopped green chillies, salt, cumin seeds and garam masala and mix well.
  • Leave the batter to ferment for an hour.
  • Heat oil in a kadai (you will need 2 cups of oil for a small kadai).
  • Take a spoonful of moong batter and drop it in the oil just like you would do for frying appam or vadas.
  • Flip it when the bottom is cooked and repeat flipping until it turns golden brown.
  • When the crackling noise of the oil reduces, remove and place on a kitchen towel or napkin for the excess oil to get absorbed.
  • You can fry 4-5 fritters in each batch.
  • Serve with tomato ketchup or green (mint/coriander) chutney. Recipe courtesy: Food for 7 Stages of Life
