Sabut moong dal or whole mung dal is a staple in my household. Simple and easy recipe cooked without onion and garlic – it’s healthy, comforting and loaded with flavor. During Navratri and other fasting days most of the Indian families consume food without onion and garlic. This recipe here depicts that cooking food without onion and garlic is full of flavor, gets cooked faster and you are out of the kitchen in no time.
RECIPE DETAIL – No fancy ingredients, pretty straightforward recipe. Soak dal for 3-4 hours and after that boil until soft and tender. For me this dal was cooked in 3 whistles but cooking time will vary depending on how old the lentils are. For some it may take up to 4-6 whistles. If you choose to add onion, garlic to this dal, feel free to improvise according to your needs and tastes. I have added chopped tomatoes but feel free to add tomato puree for a rich and creamier texture.
