Ingredients to make Mooghu-keerla ghashi

  • 2 cups sprouted moong / green gram
  • 1 cup chopped tender bamboo shoots
  • 2 cups freshly grated coconut
  • 6 - 7 roasted dry red chillies
  • 1 small marble sized tamarind ball
  • salt to taste
  • coconut oil for tempering
  • 1 spring curry leaves
  • 1/2 tsp mustard

How to make Mooghu-keerla ghashi

  1. Pressure cook sprouted moong for 15 mins with 2 cups of water or upto 2 whistles.
  2. Cook bamboo shoot separately with 3 cups of water till soft and crunchy.
  3. Drain the water from bamboo shoots to remove the bitterness of bamboo shoots if any.
  4. Prepare a paste by grinding coconut gratings, roasted red chillies and tamarind by using little water.
  5. Now transfer the cooked moong to a bigger vessel and add cooked and drained bamboo shoots. Add salt to taste bring it to a boil.
  6. Now add ground masala paste and continue boiling for about 5-7 mins. Turn off the flame.
  7. Now prepare the tempering by heating some coconut oil in a small pan. Add mustard, let it splutter, then add curry leaves and pour this over them - moong ghashi.
  8. Goes well with plain boiled white rice.

My Tip:

To remove the bitterness always use tender bamboo shoots soaked in some salt water for a day or two
