Dahi Bhalla is one of the most popular street food in north india specially in Delhi and Punjab. Peoples liked Dahi Bhalla as a snack, chaat,as a starter or in main course as a side dish. You can enjoy Dahi Bhalla at any time.


Dahi bhalla is generally made with washed split urad dal and moong dal, but urad dal is not so good for our stomach, sometimes it creates acidity, stomach pain and gastric problem. So today I going to prepare Dahi Bhalla with only moong dal, which is very easy to digest and light to our stomach.You can consume these moong dal Dahi Bhalla as much as you want.In this Dahi Bhalla recipe I did not use any onion or garlic, so you can consumed these Dahi Bhalla on any festival, pooja or even in fasts.


For making Dahi Bhalla it takes time, so you can prepare bhallas a day before and refrigerate them, when you want to enjoy soak them in hot water for few minutes and then squeeze water from it and dipped in sweet chilled curd with sweet imli chutney and spices.


You can garnish Dahi Bhalla with green coriander, some pomegranate seeds and some bhujia. But today I did not have pomegranate seeds and bhujia, so I only use green  coriander to garnish.


You can stored fried bhallas dry in zipper pouch for 1-2 weeks, when you want to enjoy or guests are coming, soaked in hot water for few minutes and squeeze water and relish. Same as for imli chutney, you can prepared this chutney before and consume at any time. Most of the indian chaat items this chutney is very essential like Pani Puri, Bhel Puri, Sev Puri Aloo Tikki and many more. I personally.always stored this chutney in my refrigerator and made any chaat items in minutes.
