Moong dal- a quick and healthy recipe

 When I need something light for lunch or dinner; something unpretentious and yet fulfilling, then I always end up making Dal- roti . Simple, delicious and easy to make.

So here is a super easy and quick version of moong dal.

Makes about 2 bowls of dal

Yellow moong dal/ washed or shelled green gram - 1/2 Katori
Ghee- 1tsp
Jeera- 1/4tsp
Heeng (asafoetida)- a pinch
Tomato- 1 small, chopped


  1. Wash the dal thoroughly. Rinse 3-4 times. 
  2. Soak in clean water for 10 min (optional).
  3. Put a pressure cooker on flame. Pour 1tsp ghee.
  4. Add heeng and jeera. When jeera starts to sizzle than add tomatoes.
  5. Now add the soaked dal. Add about 1 and 1/2 katori of water.
  6. Close the lid and put the whistle on.
  7. After about 2-3 whistles. Switch off the flame and let the pressure cooker cool down.
  8. Garnish with a few coriander sprigs (optional) and serve with hot chapatis.
Enjoy !
