Moong dal Vada is a favorite street side food in North India especially in Gujarath & Rajasthan. This is also known as pakoras, bhajias or fritters. The main ingredient of this recipe is moong dal or yellow lentil paste, which is mixed along with other spices and deep fried. 
This is my first time I tried this recipe & it tasted very light and yummy with crispy outside and soft inside. This famous starter goes well with any chutneys and ketchup.
It serves as a healthy tea-time snack to munch along with your piping hot cup of evening tea.
