– Whole green gram dhal / moong dhal – Ginger grated – Green chilies chopped – Sugar – Mango powder – Asafetida – chili powder – Turmeric powder – Ghee/clarified butter – Fresh cilantro – few
– Wash the dhal well and soak in water for about an hour. – Pressure cook the dhal with enough water until soft and mushy. Once the dhal is cooked, mash it well with a masher or a flat spoon. I used my Instant pot to cook my dhal. If using pressure cooker, cook it for 4 to 5 whistles.
– Add enough water to bring it to the desired consistency. Now add all the other ingredients except the ghee and the cilantro and mix well.
– Cook on medium heat for about 10 mins and then simmer for 15 more mins, stirring frequently in between. Since I made it on IP, I just turned t on saute mode and let it cook for about 5 minutes. – Remove from heat and add the ghee and cilantro. Mix well and serve hot with rice or roti’s.
