Sabut Moong ki daal

Bismilahir Rahmanir Raheem

I am not one of those who decides and cooks right away. I have to plan a day in advance about what to cook for breakfast, lunch and dinner. On one of those unplanned, indecisive days, I make Sabut Moong ki daal, which is a very healthy choice, best served with plain chawal or warm rotis. Here are the basic ingredients needed to make this saalan...


Sabut Moong-1 cup
Water-2-3 cups to pressure cook
Ginger/garlic paste
Salt-to taste
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Red pepper powder-11/2 tsp
Onion-1/2, thinly sliced
Tomatoes-2 cut into cubes
Curry leaves-12-15
Oil-3 tbs


Dry roast moong until you smell a lovely aroma. Wash the moong and pressure cooker with water until soft and still in shape and still inside its cover and set aside. In a pot,heat oil and sauté onons till transparent and add Ginger/garlic paste and fry till golden brown. Put in tomatoes and fry till tomatoes get mushy and put the curry leaves. Finally, put the cooked Moong and add a little bit of water to get desired consistency. Let it cook on high for two minutes and mix carefully and turn off the heat. Enjoy!
