Take care that the dish is not runny. To ensure good consistency, be careful with the water content in the dish. The consistency is what separates it from being a regular dal dish.

Trivia Tadka

Moong Dal Subzi is a spicy but healthy vegetarian dish which is highly regarded for its protein-rich content.


  • Green gram (moong dal) (1 cup)
  • Oil (2 tbsp)

  • MTR Lal Mirch/Red Chilli Powder (1/2 tsp)
  • MTR Haldi/Turmeric Powder (1 tsp)
