How to make Moong Dal With Radish Greens Recipe
To prepare the Moong Dal With Radish Greens recipe, begin by cleaning and washing the moong dal. Soak it in water for 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile wash the radish greens well and chop them finely.
Next, in a pressure cooker heat a teaspoon of cooking oil over medium heat. Once oil is hot enough add the chopped garlic and grated ginger. Stir fry on low heat till garlic turns light brown in color.
Add the soaked moong dal along with turmeric powder, red chili powder, mango powder and 2 cups of water and stir to combine. Close the lid of the pressure cooker and let the moong dal cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 whistles. Turn off the heat. Allow the pressure to release naturally.
While the dal is cooking in the pressure cooker, in a pan heat a teaspoon of oil over medium heat. Add the chopped radish greens and cook until the greens are wilted and cooked through. Turn off the heat and keep aside.
Once the pressure has released, open the lid of the pressure cooker and gently mash the dal with the back of the spoon. This will help thicken the moong dal. Add the cooked radish greens and stir to combine. Check the salt and spice levels and adjust to suit your taste.
The last step is to temper the dal. In a tadka pan, heat some ghee on medium heat. When it is warm, add the cumin seeds. Once they crackle, add the red chilli, roast the chillies for a few seconds and turn off the heat.
Pour the tadka over the dal and stir to combine. Serve Moong Dal With Radish Greens hot along with phulkas, rice and salad.
