This is such an easy recipe for working women who break their heads to make side dishes for dinner. I learnt this recipe from my mother. It takes not more than 15 minutes to prepare this side dish. This tastes yummy & even kids will love it. This serves the best side dish for crispy dosas, hot chapatis & any dish you wish to try.

Here goes the recipe. Pressure cook Moong dal for a whistle. Cut onion,tomatoes, chillies finely & keep aside. Heat oil in a pan allow mustard seeds & urad dal to splutter. Add the curry leaves, chilles & fry fore few seconds, Then add the onions & wait till turn golden brown. Then add the tomatoes & fry for some time. Don't always put tomatoes & onion together as onions wont fry well.

Add the required salt & turmeric. Mix well and add the boiled & mashed moong dal along with some water. Allow it to boil & switch off after few minutes. Don't add too much of water as it will spoil the flavor. You can even add Sambar powder & garam masala powder if you want the gravy to be more spicy & thick.

Hot delicious Moong dal is ready to be served.
