Whole green moong, being packed with proteins, automatically becomes a key contributor towards making a vegetarian meal very well balanced. A basic daal and rice or roti meal provides not only all the nutrients but also the homely feeling of a simple meal.
Green Moong Daal
Ingredients to Serve 4
Wash and clean the moong daal.
Cook the daal along with all the water and salt in a pressure cooker. Moong daal cooks real quick, so just 15-20 minutes on medium heat should do it.
In a sauce pan, heat the ghee on medium heat.
Add the garlic, chillies and saute for just a minute.
When the garlic is pinkish, add the tomatoes and saute until they are softened.
Now add the cooked daal and stir. Add more water if you don’t want it too thick. Heat this well for 3-4 minutes. You don’t have to bring it to a boil.
Take it off the heat, garnish with some cilantro and it’s ready to serve.
Enjoy with rice or roti.
Note: Whenever I make this, it’s usually a very simple meal of daal, rice and some sliced onions with lemon juice. Delicious!
