How to make Bhaja Muger Dal with Sobji (Roasted Mung dal cooked with vegetables)

  1. Heat a pan and dry roast the mung dal till it's light brown on a low medium flame. Let the roasted dal cool for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the roasted dal in a pressure cooker along with 1 and 1/2 cup water along with a pinch of salt and turmeric powder.
  3. Cover the lid of the pressure cooker with the whistle and let it cook on a medium-high heat. After 2 whistles blow, turn off the gas and let it cool for 15 minutes.
  4. Heat a large skillet and add 1 tbsp oil or ghee into it. Add the chopped potatoes into the skillet. Cover with a lid and cook on a low flame for 10 minutes so that they are partially baked.
