Mung recipe collection. Moong, also called Mung or whole green gram, is a type of legume that grows predominantly in Southeast Asia, especially India, and hence is a very big part of the Indian cuisine and food practices. It is used in many different ways whether boiled, sprouted, raw or mashed and in many different varieties of dishes like salads, soups and of course, subzis.

Moong beans can either be cooked by boiling them in a pot of water or by pressure cooking them. They also have to be soaked for at least 2-3 hours before cooking them.
