What is Mung Dal?

Dal essentially means a pulse that has been split in half (and also refers to a soup made with any kind of pulses, whole or split). Mung dal is a split mung bean. 

The mung (pronounced and sometimes spelt moong) bean, also known as the green gram, mash or moong, is a pulse – and edible seed of the legume family. It originated in Iran, dating back 4,500 years and is popular in Asian cuisine - used in both savoury and sweet dishes. 

Cooking Mung Dal

Wash and drain 200g mung dal, then place in a pan with 800ml water and bring to the boil.  Skim off any froth and then add 1/4tsp ground turmeric. Give it a stir, then cover and simmer for 45 minutes. Finally, stir in a pinch of salt and take off the heat.

Then heat some oil in a pan and add a pinch of asafoetida, 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, 1-2 dried red chillies and 1 finely sliced shallot. Stir until the shallots brown, then take off the stove and pour over the dal. Enjoy!

My Sister Loves This

It picks up the flavour of spices so add plenty of them plus lots of garlic! Lasts for ages, buy in bulk and transfer to your own jar or an empty glass bottle with a wide neck.

So Underrated

Not readily available where I live so delighted to have found this (I've always called it Yellow Split Gram). The reusable bag is a nice bonus.
