The sweet crunch of corn and the tangy flavors will surely leave you craving for more. It's a light and nutritious snack that perfectly captures the essence of the monsoon season. 


Moong Dal Cheela (Mung Bean Pancakes) 

Moong Dal Cheela, also known as Mung Bean Pancakes, is a healthy and protein-packed snack that is easy to prepare. Soak and grind the moong dal to make a smooth batter.
