How to make Moong Dal Curry/ Moong Dal Tadka

  1. Soak the whole moong for 10 minutes.
  2. Take a utensil and add some oil to heat. Add the mustard and cumin seeds.
  3. Next, add the broken green chillies along with the chopped onion.
  4. Stir fry and add the ginger-garlic paste.
  5. Then add the chopped tomatoes along with all the spice powders. Add little salt and mix well.
  6. Cover and cook till it's soft and mushy. Then uncover and add the washed moong.
  7. Mix well and add 4-5 cups of water. Pressure cook this till 2 whistles blow.
  8. Once it's cooked, let the pressure cool off. Check the water consistency and add salt as per taste.
  9. Let it simmer for a while, then squeeze in half a lemon.
  10. Add in the chopped coriander and 1-2 tsp of ghee if desired.
  11. It goes extremely well with phulkas, you can enjoy it with hot steamed rice as well.

My Tip:

You can make the consistency as required by adding more water. Stir with a big spoon to get a semi thick gravy so that a little is mashed.
