recipe of chilke wali moong dal
Chilke wali Moong Dal
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4 servings
Chilke wali moong dal is very light, healthy & full of fibre, this recipe is simple and easy to prepare, I usually cook it with any dry vegetable like karela or bhindi or with pakodas for hubby’s tiffin. This does’nt requires any preparations hence it can be cooked quickly. Ingredients required and detailed instructions for the recipe are as follows:
Moong dal-1 cup
Green chillies- 3-4
Grated ginger-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder-1/2 teaspoon
Salt-to taste
For tempering:
Ghee-1 tablespoon
Cumin seeds-1/2 teaspoon
Crushed garlic-1 teaspoon
Red chilli powder-1/2 teaspoon

Wash and soak moong dal for 15 minutes.
In a pressure cooker add dal, tomatoes, ginger, chopped green chillies, turmeric , salt and one glass of water.Pressure cook till one whistle on high flame, adjust the flame to medium, let it cook for another 6-8 minutes(2 more whistles).
Let it cool completely , check dal is soft and cooked completely.
Mix it with wooden churner, adjust the consistency of dal according to your taste by adding more water.
Place the pressure cooker on high flame let it boil.
In a tadka pan heat ghee add garlic to it, as it turns to pinkish in color add cumin seeds, as they crackle add red chilli powder to it , immediately pour tadka on dal, as red chilli powder burns quickly( you can switch off the flame before adding red chilli powder to it, as ghee is hot enough to cook red chillies.
Notes: After pressure cooking if you think that dal is not soft accordingly, after adding tempering to it, cover the lid and pressure cook till one whistle, this way aroma of garlic properly blends with dal.
