I am a self proclaimed  Dal lover and I love to make a  different one daily! I enjoy the feeling of  having FILLING FOOD, when I eat dal, rice, roti, subzi combo. Hence I am actually not very fond of Moong, coz this one doesn’t go with rice:-(

Moong or green gram  are a storehouse of proteins.Moreover, the nutritious value of the moong increases many folds when these beans are sprouted.So don’t forget to include these green pearls in your regular diet

My hubby likes Moong plain and bland,while my son and myself prefer a more spicier version.So I end up making Moong  twice in a week, one his way and one my way;-).And still it has to be accompanied with some dry Subzi or atleast a  Jowar flour DODA (recipe coming soon). Fussy eater …who me????. No way….I am just an innocent person, whose taste buds have been pampered (read…spoiled) by her mother!!

Now  considering how bias I am about spicy things, I would naturally share with you all my version of moong…..As usual hubby dear can wait…isn’t it??
