What is Sabut Moong Dal?

I love to make dals and I hate to write their posts because I am very poor with the English names of dals. Anyways, sabut moong dal is whole moong beans cooked with simple and basic ingredients still makes flavorful preparation. It is healthier of the other dals being a whole dal and with skin. Therefore, I wanted to make it such that everyone should love it so that I can make it more often and with this recipe the plan worked.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Sabut Dal Recipe

Sabut green dal or whole green beans need to be cooked well. If these remain undercooked, the dal won’t taste nice at all. To cook it well, it is important to soak the dal properly. I soaked the dal for 6-8 hours. The dal can be soaked overnight too. The dal has been pep up with a tempering of onions, garlic, ginger, and tomato puree. Adding homemade tomato puree gives a much better texture to the dishes than adding pureed tomatoes or chopped ones. However, if you like chunks of tomato in your dal, you can add chopped tomatoes.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
