A dal recipe from the kitchens of Bengal , the Bhaja Moong Dal Shobji Diye brings together moong dal with a horde of colourful, tasty and nutritious veggies!

A traditional tempering of whole spices gives the dal a tantalising aroma while tangy tomatoes and a dash of garam masala are used to boost its flavour.

It is important to handle the dal properly to get the proper consistency and mouth-feel of this dal. Remember to dry roast it before cooking, and cook it only till it is soft but remains whole. It should not become over-cooked and mushy.

Enjoy this awesome recipe, which pools in the goodness of dal and veggies in a very healthy and tasty way. With lots of fibre and ample nutrients, this dish is diabetic-friendly too.

Nice, coloutful and tempting the image looks. Its a simple dal which pairs best with hot phulkas. The veggies are an added health boost in the recipe.
