Moong is my favorite lentil forrrr sure, its wholesome, balancing, kind to our bellies..like if moong were a person they would just be a really nice loving person that gives good cuddles...u know what i mean!? It's always nice to mix up the way we use lentils and i really love this recipe so much, when i first created it i was literally making it EVERY week for at least 6 months...Give it a go and then tell me how much you lowe it :)

Prepare your toppings and If you are making any chutneys, THIS IS YOUR TIME !!! ( see notes below for my humble recommendations).
Heat frying pan on medium flame or flat pan and spray/brush with oil
Add in the fizzy bubbly ingredients and mix again.
add ladle of the batter and gently press with the back of the ladle into a round pancake shape 1-2cm thick.
Sprinkle on your toppings and press gently, cover with a lid for a couple of minutes
remove lid and let the base crisp for another 2 minutes then check and see if the base has browned.
Use a spatula to flip it over and cook for another few minutes till browned and crisp
Remove from the pan onto a cooling rack (you can keep warm in the oven too)
Continue to do the same till batter is finished.
