A no-fuss recipe from the Bengali repertoire, Kanch Moong Dal is a delightful, mildly spiced dish that you can make anyday.
This traditional recipe is made with just a teaspoon of oil, and derives its flavour from a tempering of red chillies and seeds.
It is apt for weight watchers and those trying to reduce cholesterol too. This Dal tends to thicken after a while, so if you are having it later, add a little water to it.
Enjoy it hot with rice or rotis .
