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.
- Soak the moong in enough water in a deep bowl for 15 minutes. Drain.
- Combine the moong and 1½ cups of water in a pressure cooker and pressure cook it for 3 whistles.

- Add the cooked moong, turmeric powder, chili powder, coriander seeds powder, lemon juice, sugar, coriander and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
