Everyday Gujarati cooking relies on common spices and traditional tempering to make mouth-watering dishes within minutes. This Gujarati favourite is a semi-dry curry of soaked and boiled moong, perked up with readily-available but flavour-packed spice powders.

An aromatic tempering of mustard and cumin seeds boosts the taste of the Sukha Moong, transforming it into delicious fare. It is so easy to make that you can make it on any day. Sukha Moong tastes best with Kadhi and Rice , or Kadhi and Rotlis . Enjoy it hot and fresh.

I make this often with kadhi and roti and enjoy the combo a lot. Even at times when I am hungry i eat this as a snack and it is very filling as well as tasty.
