furthermore, i would also like to add some more tips, suggestions and variations to haldiram namkeen recipe. firstly, the same procedure can be done with almost all types of lentils including the whole lentils. however, out of these moong dal and channa dal offers great taste in it. but toor dal and even urad dal can also be a great option. secondly, the deep frying can be a very slow, timid and overwhelming process. do not lose hope and also make sure to wipe the moist lentil and peas before it is dropped in hot oil. lastly, store these in a zip lock bag or any moisture-free airtight container. you may also keep it in a dry place especially near your gas stove to avoid any moisture deposits.
