How to Make Mix Dal Pakoda

Yes! it's monsoon here. One of the best season. It is very nice to have hot ginger tea with some mouthwatering and piping hot pakodas. So, here it's a home made recipe for Mid Dal Pakodas. To make it healthy I tried to add more and more dals - lentil. Because as we all know lentils are very good source of protein. So enjoy this hot snack during this rainy season.

Preparation time - 10 to 15 minutes
Soaking time - 4 to 5 hours
Cooking time - 15 to 20 minutes

1 table spoon ginger paste
1 to 1 1/2 table spoon garlic paste
Salt to taste
1/4 cup yellow moong dal
