The unique taste of suva, fortified by moong dal and spiced with green chillies makes this subzi a must-try. Suva and tomatoes are rich in vitamin A and iron, while moong dal provides the necessary protein. The order of adding ingredients is very important to ensure that all of them are properly cooked without losing their texture and colour, or becoming mushy. Relish steaming hot Suva Moong Dal with hot phulkas.
