·       Soak the Moong dal for 3-4 hours. Drain it and grind it along with ginger and green chilies. Add the idli rava to the batter and give it a good mix. The batter should not be too runny, it should be little thicker like idli batter.

·       To the batter add salt and eno. Mix it.

·       I divided the batter into 2 portions. One portion I added all the veggies and set the batter aside. The other portion was to make Pizza styled moonglet for my kids

·       Heat oil in a heat bottomed pan on a low to medium flame. Pour the veggie loaded batter to the pan, cover the pan and let it cook for 4 mins. (The batter poured on the pan should be a bit thicker than Utappam.)

·       Slowly flip the Moonglet and put the butter on the top and let it cook for another 3-4 mins.

·       Relish the Moonglet with coconut chutney.

For Pizza Styled Moonglet:

·       Similar like mentioned above, Pour the batter on the pan, sprinkle the Italian spices, arrange the veggies that you think your kids would love on their pizza.

·       Once done sprinkle the cheeses and serve.
