Spicy green moong dal...

Spicy green moong dal gravy is rich in contributing goodness to health and taste too. These little dals are always an attraction to my eyes and so are always stored in a shelf where my eyes wander everytime over the most-used cabinet. I love sprouted moong salad, moong dal chaat and moong dal curry, moong dal vada and so on
