Get ready for a treat with all Salty Snacks that the team is going to tempt you with. First in the series is this easy Moong Dal Pepper Thattai by Viji.
Though I prefer par boiled or puzungal rice for rice based snacks this one is exceptional by its taste. We don’t find time to grind and prepare snacks all the time. Need to quick fix at times. Try this one and you will be surprised. The texture and taste are awesome.
