It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.

Split Moong Dhal

Split Moong Dhal
This is a basic mung bean dhal, meant to be a simple everyday Indian meal with rice and chapati, or a side dish as part of a larger meal. The wonderful buttery flavor is obtained from the technique called tarka, which means spices sizzled in ghee, added to the pot at the end of the cooking process.


Ingredients

  • ½ cup split moong dhal
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ carrot, cut into thin slices
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ginger root, grated
  • 1 teaspoon MAPI Organic Vata Churna
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cilantro leaves
  • ½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Rinse dhal in cool water 3 times. Place water, carrots, and dhal in a medium-sized pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Skim off the foam that forms on the top of the boiling water with a tablespoon and discard.
  3. Lower heat and continue to simmer for 20 minutes, till the dhal is tender. If you want a thicker dhal, you can continue boiling for 5 minutes longer. Add the salt.
  4. In a separate saucepan melt the ghee. Add the fresh ginger root and sauté for several minutes.
  5. Add the Organic Vata Churna and sauté briefly, about 30 seconds, with the ginger root, making sure that the spices do not burn.
  6. Add spice mixture to dhal. The dhal may splash when you add the hot oil to it. Add the fresh cilantro and lemon juice.
  7. Stir and serve over rice or as a side soup with your main meal.
