Moong sar/soup

Guest author: Gauri Karmali

One day it was a rainy night and I saw some green moong soaked. Didnt know what to do, so decided to try out something new and guess what the trial was something really good, tasty and healthy.


1/2 cup green moong beans(Not sprouted)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
Pinch of asofoetedia
1 to 2 green chillies as per taste depending on how hot you want
1/2 inch of ginger crushed
1/4 cup coriander leaves
1 tsp oil
Salt as per taste

Soak the moong beans overnight and pressure cook the beans. Heat 1 tsp of oil, add the cumin seeds when the seeds crackle, add asoefotedia. Then add the green chillies and crushed ginger once the chillies and ginger is nicely fried in the oil. Add the pressured cooked moong beans and add water as much as you want. Add coriander leaves and salt and let the soup boil for a while. Serve hot with rice or it tastes just good to have it like soup.
