Dal Vegetable Pakora

Dal Vegetable Pakora

Mouth watering moong dal pakodas, served on roadside can be done in more hygienic and nutritious manner at home. With garam garam chai enjoy it this winters.

Being a North Indian, I always got tempted towards "Ram Laddu" served by roadside vendors with green chutney.
