  • Soak the yellow moong dal for 2 hours.
  • Drain the water and place it on a dry towel and allow it to dry.
  • After about 10 -15 minutes, saute the dal with coconut oil for 30 seconds.
  • Add turmeric powder, chili powder and salt and continue to saute for another 2 minutes.
  • Now, spread them evenly on a big plate and microwave/oven cook for 10 minutes (medium size microwave).
  • Check the dal often as it may burn, depending on the size of microwave.
  • Turn the heat off when you see a golden texture develop.
