Hurigaalu (roasted pulses and seeds) like peas, mung dal(hesaru bele), chana dal(kadale bele), chick peas, mung beans, avre kaalu(hyacinth beans) etc. are signature snacks of a typical Bangalore-Mysore (South Karnataka) bakery or condiment store. A special mention must go to ‘Subbamma Stores’ an old and famous condiment store in Bangalore, they make the most amazing crisp and traditional snacks (kurukulu tindi). Their hurigaalu is one of the best one can get. I have always wanted to make hurigaalu at home and mung dal particularly is my favourite as they are small, crisp and the masala coats really well. There are 3 cooking techniques involved in making this, soaking, blanching, roasting. Follow the times correctly for each process.

Notes
Do NOT exceed soaking time, you will end up with mashed dal

Do NOT completely cook the mung dal. You cannot roast mashed up dal. Keep an eye always!

Slow roasting the dal ensures it crisps up really well

Drying up the dal is very important or they will not crisp up evenly

Sprinkle any kind of masala on top or serve just salted
