Sukhi Moong Dal Recipe is tasty stir-fry that tastes great with Chapati or paratha. Simple to make a Stir Fried Moong Dal fills the need for a side dish when you have run out of vegetables and the added bonus is it is Protein Rich.

Being vegetarians at home our chief source of protein is dal and we need different dals almost every day.  Different as it varies the taste and the need for various micro nutrients are fulfilled.

One of the best dals is Moong dal also mung dal. Made from split mung bean or green bean moong is available in the market as a whole grain, with the green skin called chilke wali dal and without the skin. When sold without the skin the dal is hulled and is yellow in colour.  Mung dal has the highest protein content and is easily digestible. Owing to the fact it is highly recommended for babies, pregnant women and lactation. For the same reason, it is recommended for older people too.
Here are a few moong dal recipes I have made in the past Palak Moong Dal, Moong Dal ki Khichidi, Moong ki DalMoong VadaTriveni Dal, Dalia Khichidi, Festive Sautikai Kosambri with Lemon, Bajre ki Khichidi, Simple Paratha with Leftover Moong Dal, Moong Dal Dhokla, Moong dal Kheer.

The main ingredients in this stir fry are Moong Dal, onion, tomato and spices. You can use homemade ghee or refined oil.

    Yummy sukhi moong dal with onion and tomato. We usually make it by adding normal spices, ginger and chili and serve it along with kadhi and rice.
