Green Moongdal Omelette

Green Moongdal Omelette is a vegetarian omelette recipe which is completely nutritious and can be had for breakfast or as a tasty snack too.

After my moong dal idli, moong dal muffins, pesarattu ( moong dal dosa), this is my omelette recipe out of it, inspired by “Moonglet”, a famous streetfood in Delhi. I have tried in a similar way but with green moong dal. I will write the Moonglet recipe soon.

Green Moongdal is liked by everyone at home. I make sure I cook them at home atleast twice a week as they are highly nutritious which boosts blood circulation, improves digestion, heart health, helps in weight loss, high in protein content etc..,

As I mentioned in the beginning, this is perfect for breakfast or as a snack but I prepared this at home for dinner twice or thrice. It is stomach filling too. Serve it with sauce and salad.

I have used sprouted green moong dal in this recipe as I had it at home. Normal moong dal cleaned well and soaked in water for three to four hours can be used.
