For Newars, Wo is one dish that needs to be there in almost most of the festivals that are celebrated every year. I guess it is more like having a cake here. Wo is a pancake-like dish that is made up of minced mung daal. I am not really fond of Wo but I love to make one though.
- Mung Daal - 2 cups
- Hing Powder - 1 tsp
- Salt to taste
- Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
- Ginger/Garlic Paste - 2 tsp
Steps to follow
Soak Mung Daal overnight.
The next day, drain additional water and grind them using a mixer. If you need to add water, add little at a time.
When the mixture is ready, add salt, cumin powder, hing powder and ginger/garlic paste.
Mix well and set aside for 30 minutes.
