  • 10 g mustard oil
  • 1 piece Dried red chilli
  • 1 piece bay leaf
  • 2 pieces green cardamom pods
  • 1 inch cinnamon stick
  • 3-4 pieces of cloves
  • 1 Tb cumin seeds
  • 2 slit green chillies
  • 100 gm chopped carrot, cauliflower
  • handful of green peas
  • 1 tomato chopped roughly
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 Tb sugar
  • handful of fresh coriander leaves
  • 1/2 ts garam masala powder
  • 1 ts turmeric powder
  • a dollop of ghee

How to make Bhaaja Mooger Daaler Sobji(Moong Daal sabji)

  1. Dry-roast the dal, stirring continuously, till it changes colour from yellow to a pinkish brown
  2. Transfer the roasted dal into a boiling pot immediately
  3. Wash and rinse the dal thoroughly.
  4. Add water to the washed dal.
  5. Boil it on medium heat for about 20 minutes/ till partially cooked(not broken/mashed)
  6. Heat up the kadai once more and add mustard oil.
  7. temper it with the dried red chilli, bay leaf, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, cumin seeds, and 1 green chilli
  8. Add the cauliflower and carrots and sauté for 2-4 minutes on medium heat
  9. Add the tomatoes and peas, one at a time, and fry them for a minute after each addition.
  10. Pour in the roasted, boiled dal with its water.
  11. Add the salt, sugar and turmeric, and stir them in.
  12. Allow the dal to bubble for about 6 minutes on low heat. (Don’t increase the heat level or the liquid in the dal may dry up)
  13. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves, a slit green chilli, garam masala powder, and ghee.
  14. Cover the pan with a lid and allow the dal to soak up the flavours from the garnish before serving it with rice

My Tip:

While roasting the daal, it is important to keep the dal moving while it is in the pan to ensure that all surfaces of the grains roast evenly. Be particularly alert once the dal has taken on a light, brown colour, as it is during this stage that the dal has the tendency to burn easily
