Mung Dal


Here's another healthy dal recipe from Amma, mung beans are high in  Protein, Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Riboflavin, Folate and copper - WOW

Ingredients: 
  • 2 cups mung dal, soaked overnight
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 small tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3 teaspoon coriander powder
  • pinch of turmeric
  • a few mustard seeds, curry leaves and cumin seeds
Method:
  1. Either boil the mung dal for 15 min, with water level with the dal or pressure cook for one whistle
  2. heat the oil, then pop the mustard seeds , add cumin and curry leaves, then add the onions and saute for 5 min
  3. add the tomato and garlic and saute until it reduces down into a paste.
  4. then mix in the mung dal, with the curry powders and salt and simmer for 10 min
  5. garnish with fresh cilantro.
This is pretty easy and so so healthy and tasty, great with rice, chapatti or dosa.

I think I ate too many beans yesterday i had these, black beans and edemame, I don't recommend this many in a day, my tummy was a bit gassy!!!, 

So I had veggies and pasta today LOL

Hope your having a great weekend, I went to a baby shower today and they made a birthing bead necklace, everyone had to bring a bead to add and say why they choose it and say encouraging words. It was lovely just thought I would share in case you need ideas for baby showers.

Love
