Punjabi Green Moong Dal Recipe | Sabut Moong Dal by Jiya Jesh · Updated on December 4, 2019 Curries/ Gravies| Dal recipesPunjabi green moong dal or sabut moong dal recipe – a comforting whole green gram curry. This easy and delicious recipe has mung beans flavored with spices. It goes well with rice or as a side dish for chapathis or phulkas. I love simple dals which don’t need much preparation or loaded with spices, just like cabbage dal. This whole green moong dal is one such curry which has only a few spices and is perfect for a simple lunch or dinner. The only other flavor that is distinct in this dal is ginger which complements the earthy flavor of moong beans.I have first cooked the dal using pressure cooker and then completed the curry in a pan. Also, I have not soaked the dal. But you can soak the dal overnight or for 2-3 hours which will reduce the pressure cooking time.For other dal recipes do check outeasy pressure cooker dal palakkala chana masalasimple rajma masala currybeetroot dalMung beans are rich in fiber and are easy to digest.
