Turai, a vegetable that is low in calories and carbohydrate, is combined with onion and flavoured with ginger and garlic to make a simple dish ideal for those of us who like simple flavours. Though the recipe says to use peeled turai feel free to use them unpeeled to take advantage of the fibre content present in the peel. Serve this dish with hot phulkas and a salad.

Despite never tasting or liking Turai, i loved this recipe. The moong dal has a nice mouth feel and the cooked turai tastes good with the taste of galic and onions.
