Turai Moong Dal Recipe – Turia Mug Ni Dal by Archana’s Kitchen


  • To begin making the Turai Moong Dal Recipe, first prep all the ingredients and keep them ready.

  • Add the  moong dal in the pressure cooker along with salt and turmeric powder. Cover the cooker and pressure cook the dal for 3-4 whistles and turn off the heat. Allow the pressure to release naturally. Keep this cooked dal to the side. You don’t have to mash the dal

  • Next to make the Turai Masala, heat oil in a pressure cooker; add the cumin seeds, ginger and green chillies and give it a stir.

  • Add the tomatoes, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder and salt to taste. Saute the tomatoes until it slightly softens.

  • Next add the cut ridge gourd/ turai sabzi and give it a stir. Add 1/4 cup of water, cover the pressure cooker and cook for 2 whistles and turn off the heat. Allow the pressure to release naturally.

  • Once both the cookers have released the pressure, open and add the cooked moong dal to the turai masala.

  • Give it a stir and taste and check if it needs more salt and adjust to taste accordingly.

  • Give the Turai Moong Dal a brisk boil for 2 minutes and turn off the heat.

  • Stir in the chopped coriander leaves and the lemon juice and transfer the Turai Moong Dal/ Turia Mug Ni Dal to a serving bowl and serve hot.

  • Serve this Turia Mug Ni Dal/ Turai Moong Dal along with Sukhi Aloo Sabzi and Thepla that are almost necessity to be made along with this dish.
