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.
