Hesar Bale Gajjari Kosambri

Since moong dal, hesar bale, or hessaru bale is light for digestion it is ideal for the aged, young and those recovering from sickness. It is also a part of a postpartum diet.

I had totally forgotten about this salad until PJ posted it here. Thanks PJ!

The salads served in small helpings I do not know why but since it is delicious and I have been advised a light diet this is something I made and had a full bowl for my 11 am snack.  Believe me I did not realise it was 1:30 pm and way past my lunch hour when my kid came home from school.

The main ingredients here are moong dal, carrots and a good tempering.

The other dishes with moong dal are Sukhi Moong Dal Recipe|Tasty Stir Fried Moong Dal, Moong Dal, Urid Dal Paddu, Simple Paratha with Leftover Moong Dal,  Moong Dal DhoklaMoong dal KheerPalak Moong DalMoong Dal ki KhichidiMoong ki Dal.
