Many of us reach out for chips and other unhealthy munchies to satiate our hunger pangs. But how about keeping things healthy with a delicious and super nutritious recipe — moong dal waffle!

Moong dal or green gram dal is packed with healthy nutrients, high antioxidants, potassium, magnesium, and fibre. This recipe can work as a great evening snack or even breakfast. Instead of using leavened batter or dough, which is conventionally used for waffles and is high in calories and refined carbohydrates, moong serves as an easy and healthy alternative.

Chef Sanjeev Kapoor recently shared the recipe which is a fuse between the traditional moong and the modern waffle. It unites the parameters of a good healthy meal with an innovative one.

Take a look!
