Moong Dal Susiyam

Moong Dal Susiyam is a classic sweet dish in South India that is made during the festive times of Tamil New Year. This is a traditional dish that has been passed down generation by generation in India since it is incredibly healthy and it is so delicious taste. These sweet and crunchy fritters are packed with protein and other essential minerals to keep you healthy throughout your day. So go ahead and try this easy recipe out!

Furthermore, I would like to share some of my suggestions for making delicious Moong Dal Susiyam. Firstly, I used all purpose flour and 2 tsp of rice for the batter. The batter should be little thick just like Idli batter. The rice flour gives Susiyam a crispy texture. You can also use Idly batter instead of all purpose flour batter.

Secondly, you can also use Channa dal instead of Green Moong Dal. But I used Green Moong Dal because it is low on carbs and high in protein.

Finally, try to use jaggery instead of white sugar.
