How to make Khatti Moong Daal

  1. Wash and soak sabut moong for at least 1 hour prior to cooking. Take a pressure cooker, add ghee, methi dana & cumin seeds.
  2. Once the seeds start to crackle, add in the chopped green chilies, curry leaves & asafoetida.
  3. Now add in the soaked daal along with 2 glasses of water & pressure cook for 3-4 whistles or till it is cooked well & becomes soft & mushy.
  4. Once cooked, open the cooker & mash the daal using a whisk. Whisk the yogurt, few curry leaves, sugar, salt, turmeric, kokum, chopped ginger & the shredded red chilies into the daal.
  5. Add in approximately 2 - 2.5 cups of water. Stir well & let it simmer for about 15 minutes. Add in the fresh coriander & lemon juice. Remove from the flame.
  6. Add 1 tsp of ghee into the whole moong daal just before serving.
My Tip: Goes best with steamed rice or rotis. You can also make a puree and serve it as a lentil soup. Instead of kokum dried or fresh raw mango slices can also be used. Vegans - you can skip yogurt & increase the amount of lemon juice.
