Moong dal (ಹೆಸರು ಬೇಳೆ ಸಾರು)

Moong Dal with kasoori methi(dals) (ಹೆಸರು ಬೇಳೆ ಸಾರು)

this is very easy to make and bit different than the usual saaru(rasam) and Huli(sambar).
Whenever I am bored of eating the same rasam or sambar and still want some dal in the meals I usually make this .Very easy and really tasty .This recipe is out of my own experiments, and I like moongdal with garlic.
  1. 1 cup cooked moong dal
  2. onions finely chopped
  3. 1/2 medium sized green tomato( tomatillo)
  4. garlic 2 cloves
  5. green chilies slit lengthwise
  6. salt to taste
  7. kasoori methi 1 tbsp
  8. oil 2 tsp
  9. jeera(cumin) 1 tsp
  10. mustard seeds(rai) 1 tsp
  11. turmeric 1/4 tsp
heat oil and add mustard and jeera
add turmeric and garlic
add green chilies,onion,green tomatoes and let cook for some time.
add cooked dal and add about 1 1/2 cup of water
bring to boil and add salt and kasoori methi simmer for a minute and this simple and flavourful dal is ready to enjoy.
