Mouth-watering and sumptuous, this Mooli Moong Dal combines radish whites and greens with moong dal, all of which is flavoured with a delectable masala paste.

This paste, made of a rich combination of ingredients, improves both the texture and the flavour of the Mooli Moong Dal, raising it to a class beyond ordinary dals.

This easy, Microwave -made accompaniment has a semi-solid consistency. If you wish to eat it later, you can add a little water before re-heating it to bring it back to the original consistency.

Mooli Moong Dal ( Microwave Recipe)

Mooli Moong Dal, a unique combination of dal with mooli.. the mooli blends well giving a slight crunchy taste.. the coconut and the spice paste added to the dal.. makes the dal more aromatic and flavourful.. the dal is enjoyed best with plain steamed rice.
