Muga Bara

Cooking Time Required: 15-20 mins
Cost of Preparation: 30-35 rupees

Ingredients: Green moong dal ( 1 cup ), sugar ( 3-4 tsp ), baking powder ( 1/3 tsp ), salt to taste, oil for frying.

Preparation: Soak the moong dal for 5-6 hours. Wash and grind into a thick & coarse paste along with a little water.

Add the sugar and baking powder. Add salt to taste. Mix well.

Cooking: Heat oil in a wok for deep frying.

Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the hot oil. Cook evenly to a reddish brown color.
Remove from the wok and put on a absorbent paper.

Note: While the sweet version of muga bara is hugely popular, one can also prepare the spicy version by substituting the sugar with green chillis, coriander leaves, onion and cumin powder.

Muga bara is also offered to Goddess Lakshmi as a prasad.
