Chatpate Moth

Breakfast is the most essential meal of the day.Being the first intake of the day it helps to energise the body, mind and give us the kick start. It is very important to do the nutritious healthy breakfast. We should never miss / skip it.

Besides steamed idli dhokla and oats , even pulses or grain could be easily included in our breakfast. Moth is another grain we eat as whole cooked, sprouted or even as daal.
Another excellent source of nutrients and powerpack snack.
Blended with right ingredients it makes a yummy mini meal. My secret chatpate moths are the favourite in my home.

These lentils need to be soaked well enough before being cooked. Not only in breakfast these taste yum as evening tea snacks. Mine is very simple basic preparation and believe me this taste superb simple.
