Egg & Potato Masala Moong Dal.. (Pressure Cooker Version)

Egg & Potato Masala Moong Dal.. From past few weeks I'm feeling like to cook only that food which I use to eat before my marriage.. After my marriage my eating habit and food has changed completely. I use to be hardcore non-vegetarian I change my self to be just non-vegetarian.. I changed my cooking and eating habit just because of my hubby, because he don't prefer to eat non-veg that much and I don't wanted to eat alone. So instead of eating every day I made it to twice a month or sometime once in a week... Me being south Indian I love north Indian food from the beginning , I think for that only god gave me a my Husband :) I have just started cooking some selective food slowly and he is also eating. I'm sure if I cook south Indian food at least once in a week it is good for him to try out new dishes.. It is not like he don't eat completely, he eats some foods which favourite of all (Dosa, Idli, Sambar, Rasam etc) now enough of my story. Let me come to the recipe..

This masala moong dal with potato and egg is my family curry, we use to eat this most of the time for breakfast with hot roti's but I prefer with rice. So I use to save my dal for the lunch and then eat with rice.. Do try this unique combination to serve a different dish to your family member..

4 hard boiled eggs
2 medium potato (cut into big chunks)
1 cup split moong dal
1 medium onion, 2 green chilli, 1 large tomato (finely chopped)

1tsp ginger garlic paste
Hand full of chopped coriander leaves
Salt to taste.

For Tempering.
1/4tsp mustard seeds

Cooking Method.
