Moong Dal sundal/Green Gram sundal







This is a very easy and quick sundal to prepare during Navaratri, we also make this quite often on other days too.
Sometimes I also add raw grated green mango to this sundal which imparts a very tangy touch .



Ingredients


1 cup soaked green gram/Moong dal/Paasi parupu
2 green chillis
2 tbsp grated fresh coconut
Pinch of  asafoetida
salt to taste
 2 tsp coconut oil./ any other oil for tempering.
1/2 tsp mustard seeds.
some curry leaves to garnish.

Method


As the moong dal cooks very quickly and tend to be mushy, yo dont need to soak for long or overnight, just a 30 minute soak is good enough.

Pressure cook upto 1 or 2 whistles only..
Remove from cooker when completely cool, drain water if any and keep aside.
In a pan,add the oil, let it get hot, add the mustard seeds, when they pop, . add the drained moong dal, salt, pinch of asafoetida powder.
Meanwhile grind the coconut and green chillis to a dry paste.
Add  this paste to the  the moong dal, and mix well.
Granish with curry leaves.
