To begin making the Pudina Moong Dal recipe, add 1 cup of water, turmeric powder and washed moong dal in a stainless steel vessel and cook till the dal turns soft. Alternatively, just pressure cook upto 2 whistles.
Once the dal is cooked, add 1 and 1/2 cups of water, salt. Bring to a boil and then simmer. While the dal is simmering, prepare the tadka.
Heat ghee/oil in a tadka pan. First fry the cumin seeds and then add asafoetida.
Add mint leaves and fry for some seconds. Lastly add red chili powder.
Immediately, pour this tempering/tadka mixture in the dal & stir well. Simmer the dal for 2 to 3 minutes.
Serve Pudina Moong Dal along with Capsicum Usili and Phulkas for a weekday lunch or dinner.
