Yellow Moong Dal Recipes for Indian Food

Cabbage and Dal ParathaCabbage and Dal Paratha

Parathas/rotis - Moong dal and Indian food go hand in hand. It is used as various forms in parathas, rotis, subzis and dals, breaking the common misconception that moong dal can only be used to make the dal-chawal. Yellow moong dal cooks fast while still remaining a little crunchy. That comes in handy while making Yellow moong dal and Spring Onion Parathas or even Cabbage dal paratha as it gives an excellent flavor and texture. If you want to avoid any other vegetables, you can simply make Dal Paratha, where the dal is sautéed with spices and then filled.

Yellow Moong Dal Subzis – even though dals are usually not eaten as subzis, you can make certain exceptions. Methi and Moong Dal Subzi is a simple, healthy subzi that can be made in under 10 minutes with a jeera and garlic flavor running through it. Replacing methi with suva/dill and cooking the dal with tomatoes, gives a really nice texture without it being too mushy, making Moong Dal and Suva Subzi amazing to eat.

Dals and Khichdis – When cooked and grinded properly, yellow moong dal gives a super creamy texture which is perfect to make Dal. Spicy Yellow Moong dal is made without any oil and still tastes just as amazing then the one with tadka.  Combining moong dal with masoor dal and aromatics like ginger, garlic and rai creates a flavorful, fragrant Dal Fry. Khichdi, a traditional Gujarati rice and dal recipe, is perked up with the benefit of bajra in the Bajra and Moong dal Khichdi.

Yellow Moong Dal Recipes for Soups

It's such an unusual way to think of dal being put in soup, but I promise you it is wonderful! The Healthy Lentil soup is wonderful appetizer to go with your food and it doesn’t pound on the calories like crazy! Another zero-oil recipe is Moong Dal and Spinach Soup which has the intense saltiness of palak with the mildness of the moong dal. Replacing a meal with a One Meal Soup made with moong dal, carrots and onions is not only filling, but also nutritious.

A very Famous Gujarati snack, with a slight twist, is Moong Dal Khichu, which makes it even more delicious. Here the rice flour is replaced with yellow moong dal, seasoned with green chillies and cumin seeds and served with koro sambhar.

A Kachori is a crispy, deep fried snack with different types of fillings, perfect for any occasion and loved by all.

The fact that they are so much fun to eat and sponge like, is just an icing on the cake. May it be the rainy season or not, Moong dal Pakodas are much loved as they crispy on outside and soft on the inside.

Yellow Moong Dal Recipes for Desserts

Even though it takes time to prepare, it is most definitely worth the effort. Just like that in the south they make Sweet Pongal, an offering of rice and dal, sweetened with jaggery and mixed with nuts, which is presented as Prasad to god.
