Daal Moong with Satpura

BM # 5   Day 3
Daal moong is a typical Sindhi breakfast but since everybody prefers a lighter breakfast it is shifting  from breakfast to lunch.

A combination of two pulses cooked separately,garnished with spices ,onions and chutneys it is absolutely a feast by itself.
A simple sindhi phulka or a satpura goes very well with this.

1 cup…….yellow moong daal
¼ tsp…….turmeric
Pinch ……ellaichi pwd
Salt to taste
Wash and soak daal for about 2hrs.
Cook with turmeric.ellichi pwd and salt till soft and mushy.
Blend it well with a wooden blender.

For the moong
1cup…….green gram(moong)
¼ tsp……turmeric
Salt to taste
Wash and soak moong for 2 hrs.
Pressure cook with turmeric and salt .after one whistle cook on slow flame for about 5-8 minutes.the moong should be soft and well cooked.
