How to Make Quick Moong Dal Chutney

  • Wash the moong dal well and soak it in water for an hour or until it is soft. In a blender, grind the soaked moong dal along with the red chillies, cumin seeds and salt into a fine paste by adding little water. The paste should be thick, so add the water only as required.
  • Transfer the finely ground pickle into a serving bowl, add the lemon juice and mix well.
  • In a small pan, heat the oil and add the mustard seeds.
  • When they splutter, add the cumin seeds, the dals and the curry leaves. Fry them until the dals turn golden brown.
  • Finally, add the above seasoning to the prepared pickle and mix well.
  • Serve with hot rice and ghee.
