4 cups water
1 1/2 tsp. salt

How to make spicy moong dal :
  • Wash the dal and boil in the salted water until it is all very soft and most of the water absorbed.
  • Stir often.
  • Heat the ghee or butter in a saucepan, and add the spices to it. Stir them around for a few minutes, then remove from the heat.
  • Pour the dal into the butter and spices, being careful to protect yourself from the spattering which is likely to occur.
  • Return to the heat, stirring often, and let it simmer until it has the consistency of a fairly thick sauce.
  • Serve very hot.
  • Serves: 6
