The use of whole green gram or moong is very common in day-to-day Gujarati fare. Khatta moong is a lovely recipe that features cooked moong simmered with curds and spices. The use of curds bestows a unique, sumptuous feel to this recipe. Garlic-lovers can even add a little garlic paste to add a whole new dimension to this item.
