What is Rajasthani Mogar Ki Sabzi?
Mogar ki sabzi has moong dal as its key ingredient. We usually enjoy moong dal in its curry form, but rarely as a sabzi. To make this unique sabzi, moong dal (green gram) is cooked separately and then sauteed along with tomatoes and a pool of flavorful spices. Tomatoes add a kick of tangy flavor to this sabzi. It does not take much time to prepare and also has a high protein content. Mogar ki sabzi offers the perfect balance of health and taste and will be a refreshing change from regular bhindi sabzi, bharta, gheeya, aloo sabzi etc. You can make it for lunch and dinner and pair it with dal, raita and achaar to put together a healthy meal.
Rajasthani Mogar Ki Sabzi Recipe | How to make Rajasthani Mogar Ki Sabzi
Start by washing the moong dal nicely. Soak it in water for a while. Transfer to a pressure cooker along with water and cook for 3 to 4 whistles. Now heat some oil in a pan and add jeera, mustard seeds and hing. When the seeds start to crackle, add all the dry masalas. Sauté well. Next, we have to add the chopped ginger, green chillies and garlic. Give it a good mix before adding the tomatoes. Once the tomatoes are cooked, it’s time to add the moong dal to the pan. Mix well and cook for a few minutes. Finally, add the salt and a squeeze of lemon juice for a kick of flavour. Top it with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with roti.
