Indian Moong Stir Fry

Green moong has become one of my favourite plant based proteins ever since I have started a vegan diet. It`s a tasteful bean which can be added to any salad, curry or just tossed around with some spices.

This a quick South Indian spiced version with the freshness of coconut, lime and coriander.

You can play around with the herbs depending on what you have lying in your fridge – parsley and mint would also blend very well. Add in a cup of cooked quinoa or millets for a wholesome meal.

What you need-

  • 1 tsp oil

  • ½ cup green moong Dal, raw

  • 1 tsp mustard seeds

  • 10 curry leaves

  • ½ tsp turmeric powder

  • ½ tsp cumin powder

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1 tomato, chopped

  • Salt & pepper as per taste

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • ¼ cup grated coconut

  • Chopped coriander​
