Moong Masala Dal (Green Gram Dal)

These nutrient-filled, small green beans are popular in the cuisines of India, China, Thailand and Japan. Mung beans in particular are very easy to digest, and absorb the flavor of seasonings and spices very well. When sprouted, they are used in salads or stir fries. They also make delicious soups and curries.
This is one of my families favorite dal. I cook this dal very often for my hubby's lunch box, he just love's it. After eating lunch he gives me a call and says lunch was very tasty i ate completely.. Even i love to eat this dal without rice or roti just plain dal it taste awesome.. Do try this recipe and let me know :)

200 gram moong dal (green gram dal)
1 medium size onion, 2 green chilly, 1 medium size tomato

Dear Rumana
How are you ? I like this dal recipe , we bongs rarely cook dal in this style..and the recipe is bit diff than the northern ones I know , so must give a try,
Have a nice weekend.
PS. In the method you have mentioned Udad dal , I guess it is typing mistake and we continue with whole mung dal :-)

Rumana Rawat said...

@ Hello Mr. Ghosh,
Thanks.. Hope all is well in your side too. Thanks alot for informing me about my typing mistake.. :)
