Rebecca's Mung Dal

So I made mung yesterday simple and very nutritious I used Amma's recipe with a couple of my additions its great to be having home cooked food again.

  • 2 cups mung dal, soaked overnight
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • a squirt of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup grated coconut
  • 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
  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, add the coconut and lemon juice.
  5. garnish with fresh cilantro.
When you return from a trip what is the first meal you like to cook?

Have a lovely saturday everyone
