Indian Moong Dal Namkeen is a popular Indian snack made up of husked and split mung beans that have been seasoned and deep-fried with a mixture of spices. The pulse is first soaked for a few hours, thereafter dried before being fried until crispy. The seasoning mixture normally comprises red chili powder, cumin seeds, and salt, although other spices can also be utilized. The end result is a savory, crunchy snack that can be mostly enjoyed on its own or with a cup of tea. Indian Moong Dal Namkeen is a popular snack throughout India and is generally served at festivals and varied other special occasions.
