Wo (Split Mung Daal Recipe)

Introduction

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.

Makes about 8 - 10 servings

Ingredients Needed

  • 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.
Add all spices to the mixture
Mix well and set aside for 30 minutes.

Heat cast-iron skillet on a medium heat.

Spread oil in a skillet
Pour about 1/3rd cup in the skillet. You can add about 3 of them at a time.
Pour the mixture in the skillet
When you are done pouring them and after 15 seconds, use a spoon and spread around to make a round shape. You may need little water in a bowl so you can dip in the spoon for smoothness.
Note: If you cook it in this way, you can see a circle lined when you turn over - just for presentation, it will look good.
Spread the mixture with a spoon
After about few minutes when the upper part looks cooked, turn over. If you need to add some oil around it, you can.
Turn over
Remove Wo from the skillet now and let it stand until it cools off a little. Wo is ready to be served.
