I am just in love with the cooking style of this recipe... All the ingredients tossed in a pressure cooker and cooked to perfection and my accompaniment to fluffy rotis is ready to be served on the dinner table.

Spicy moong dal makes a nice healthy zero oil dal. The moong dal has a nice soft mouth feel and there is a nice aroma of garlic.
