Moong bhel recipe - healthy snack recipes

    This is a nice healthy dish which is enjoyed by the kids as it is like any other chaat and equally by grown up as its healthy and tasty. I make this for breakfast or also when we are in mood for light dinner. It is low in calories too. You can also make this with moong sprouts. Some people make with raw moong sprouts too. But I love it this way. Do try this especially if you are on a diet and trying to reduce weight. It makes a delicious and filling dish too.
