Moong Dal Uppu pindi

imageUppu pindi another variation

I’ve posted Uppu pindi with mudi senagalu in my earlier recipe. This recipe is almost similar to that recipe. Instead of using black chick peas I’ve used moong dal. Remaining procedure is the same. Soaking of moong dal is not required as it takes less time to cook. Moong dal Uppu pindi tastes amazing when prepared in normal Kadai. A thin crispy layer stick to the Kadai after cooking. This slightly burnt and crunchy layer(maadu in Telugu) is very delicious. The thin layer we don’t get when we use non stick kadai. Here I present comforting breakfast Uppu pindi with pesara pappu(moong dal) to relish on any day along with buttermilk(traditional combination). Buttermilk quenches our thirst after having Uppu pindi and soothes our throat. Njoy Cooking,Serving n Savoring!
