1/1 Photo of Moong Sabzi (Lentil Vegetable Mix)
Another really nice recipe I found in the newspaper. This Indian "sabzi" (vegetable accompaniment for rotis/Indian bread) also goes well with yogurt-rice or as filling for a really unique sandwich!

Units: US | Metric
- 1Heat oil in a pan.
- 2Add cumin seeds.
- 3Wait until they crackle before adding the chili.
- 4Now add onion, a pinch of salt, and saute on a low flame till the onion turns translucent.
- 5Add the tomato and a bit of salt and let it fry on a low flame until the water starts separating from the tomato.
- 6Add the moong dal and mix it well into the onion-tomato paste, add salt, let it fry for a few minutes.
- 7Add enough water to just about submerge the moong, cover the pan with a lid and leave it to cook on a low flame.
- 8Stir the mixture occasionally to make sure that the water does not evaporate leaving the moong stuck to the bottom of the pan.
- 9When all the water has disappeared, check to see that the moong is soft enough to be eaten.
- 10The mix should be dry and not liquid like Indian dal normally is.
- 11Sprinkle the chopped corriander and serve hot with chappati or roti.
