Wash the moong dal thoroughly under running water. Then, soak the dal in enough water for about 2-3 hours.
Drain the water and transfer the dal to a blender or food processor. Grind the dal to a coarse paste.
In a mixing bowl, combine the ground moong dal with finely chopped onion, green chillies, grated ginger, cumin powder, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, and salt. Mix well to ensure all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
Now, take a small portion of the mixture and shape it into a round patty, pressing gently to flatten it slightly. Repeat this process with the remaining mixture, shaping all the tikkis.
Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and add a small amount of oil for shallow frying. Cook the tikkis for about 3-4 minutes on each side until they turn golden brown and crispy.
