How to make Dhaba Style Green Moong Dal Tadka Recipe
  1. I will be using a pressure cooker to cook the Green Moong Dal Tadka Recipe. You can optionally use a sauce pan method to cook the dal the similar way as below. Do make sure to adjust the water levels if cooking in a saucepan. Cook until the dal is soft and mushy.
  2. Soak the green moong dal in 3 cups of water for at least 1 hour.
  3. To begin, into the pressure cooker, add in the soaked green moong dal along with the water, the ginger, tomatoes, salt, turmeric powder and green chillies. Cover the pressure cooker with its weight on.
  4. Cook the dal in the pressure cooker, until you here 3 to 4 whistles. Simmer the heat to low and continue to cook for another 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, turn off the heat and allow the pressure to release naturally.
  5. You will know that the pressure has released when you lift the weight and the "whishing" sound goes away.
  6. Open the cooker and you will notice that the dal is well cooked. Sometimes, if you have a very old day, then it might take a longer time to cook. If that is the case, add a little more water if required and cook for a few more whistles and turn off the heat. And once again allow the pressure to release itself naturally.
  7. Now, that the dal is cooked, we will make the seasoning
  8. Heat the ghee in a small kadai or a pan; add in the cumin seeds and optionally the red chillies and allow it to crackle. Once its crackles and the red chilli is well roasted, turn off the heat.
  9. Add this seasoning (tadka) to the cooked green moong dal. Give it a stir.
  10. Finally stir in the chopped coriander leaves and the juice from one lemon. Check the salt and spice levels and adjust to suit your taste and serve the dal warm.
