Dry Mung Dal


Dash of olive oil
1/2 cup yellow mung dal
Mustard seeds
Chilli powder
Salt to taste


  1. Soak the Mung dal for 30 minutes or so.
  2. In a non-stick pan, heat oil and add the mustard seeds.
  3. Once they start crackling, add turmeric.
  4. Add the soaked mung dal with very little water.
  5. Add Chilli powder and salt.
  6. Cook on slow heat until the dal is well done. This should take approximately 20-30 minutes.
Serve! Typically I eat this with some plain yogurt.

Tip: I cook 3-4 dals at one time, put them in small containers in the fridge. This makes assembling lunch easy when you are rushing to work.
