What is Moong Dal Toast?

Dal Toast is a crisp and crunchy bread slice that has been coated with dal batter which is flavored with ginger, green chilies, and coriander.

Moong dal cheela is a regular breakfast option at my place. And regular gets boring at times. So this time when I soaked the lentils, I had dal toast on my mind. And everyone loved this break. At a time when you don’t have paneer or any other vegetables to make stuffed dal chilla, to make it more filling you can just convert a simple dal into a dal toast. Dal toast is a great breakfast/snacks or tiffin recipe.

Let talk about the ingredients for Moong dal toast

I have used split and dehusked green gram (moong dal) to make dal toast. You can also use split green gram (hari moong dal). I have used white bread. You can use brown bread or multi-grain bread. For the flavoring, I have used ginger, green chilies and coriander. You can add some veggies such as onion, cabbage etc.

How to Make Moong Dal Toast

1. In a grinder take 1 cup soaked Moong Dal. Add chopped 1” piece of ginger and 1 chopped green chili. Add little water. Make a paste. Check the consistency. It should not be runny. It should have a spreadable consistency. Add water as required.


2. After grinding, take out the dal in a bowl. Add salt to taste, ½ tsp red chili powder, ¼ tsp turmeric powder, ¼ tsp asafetida powder, 1 tbsp gram flour and handful of chopped coriander. Mix everything well.


3. Take a bread slice. Spread the lentil paste on the slice.


4. Heat a pan. Drizzle few drops of oil. Once it is hot put the bread slice on the hot pan with the batter side down. Let it cook till it browns. Flip and cook from the side too. Take on a perforated plate.


5. Serve Dal Toast with coriander chutney or a cup of tea.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
