Moong Dal (Split yellow gram) and Oats Tikki

mdot final 1

A nutritious snack that serves a dose of protein and fibre. Moong dal has good protein content and is also very healthy and light to eat. The dal has a mild flavour and thus blends well with other ingredients. It cooks fast with minimum time required for soaking and so you can make this dish in a short notice also.

The oats you use are the quick rolled ones that are used in porridge. You do not need to powder them.

Make it for tea or for a party as it is not only a healthy option but also a delicious one.
