Not everyone eats eggs but all must have heard about the dish “Omelet”. I sometimes even get tempted looking at it but being a non eggetarian I have never eaten an Omelet. However, to satisfy my temptation towards it, I definitely had to get some solution to it. I am sure there might be many such like me. So while searching for the same, we discovered “Munglet”. Has anyone heard about “Munglet” before? Moonglet is basically an Eggless Omelet. Omelet which somewhat looks and tastes like Omelet but has no eggs. Isn't that exciting? It can also work as a replacement to your conventional Besan Cheela. It has several variations in it. But let me share with you my recipe. Let us first note all the ingredients.
2 medium sized chopped Onions / Kaanda
1 medium sized Carrot/Gajar
8 Cloves Garlic/Lehsun
2 Green Chillies/Hari Mirch Medium Spicy
2 inch big Ginger/Adrak
½ cup chopped Coriander Leaves/Hara Dhanya
All you need is some soaked dal. So if you want to make Moonglet, you have to soak both the dals for 5 hours prior. It should look like this after 5 hours.
To prepare the batter, we will need a mixer.
Take both the Dals, Ginger, Chillies, Garlic and ½ teaspoon of Salt in the mixer.
Add ½ cup of water in it and blend all the ingredients.
Add all the vegetables in this crushed mix. Here, you can add some chilli powder if you like it spicy.
Heat some oil in a nonstick pan at high flame.
Once the oil is hot enough, spread it evenly in the pan.
Put one tablespoon of the batter in the pan and lower the gas flame.
Again spread the batter evenly in the pan so as to get thinner and Crispier Moonglet.
Turn the gas flame to medium after 1 minute.
After 2 minutes, apply some oil on the visible layer.
Let it rest for a total of 10 minutes. However, keep checking the lower side.
Now, Flip it to other side and let it cook for the next 5 minutes.
Now flip it again and cook it as per your taste, cook it more for crispiness and less if you like it soft.
Finally! Your Moonglet is ready… You can serve it with ketchup or you can use Imli chutney/Tamarind Sauce, Green Chutney/Sauce or Lehsun Chutney/Garlic sauce. This will add a taste to your Moonglet.
You can cook this with one dal also but if you like it crispy, I suggest you to use green dal. It makes the Moonglet crispier.
Not everyone likes all the vegetables so you can change or even avoid using some or all vegetables as per your own preferences.
Make sure you soak the dals for at least 5 hours before making it.
This is a basic recipe but if you don't like the taste you can experiment with the ingredients and make a perfect dish that suits your taste.
