Tips and Suggestions by a Mom Chef:
- The moong dal to milk ratio should be 2:3.
- Milk can be used instead of water.
- While the moong dal and rice mixture is added to the boiling milk, it should be stirred continuously and mixed well.
- The pieces of chandrakanti should be medium-sized, to make them crispy.
