Moong Dal Tadka Recipe

"Dinesh Flour Mills Ki Moong Dal Tadka - Swaad Se Bharpur, Traditions Se Anupar!"


  1. For the Dal:

    • 1 cup Dinesh Flour Mills Moong DaXal (split yellow lentils)
    • 3 cups water (adjust as required)
    • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
    • Salt, to taste
  2. For the Tadka/Tempering:

    • 2 tablespoons ghee or oil (ghee gives a richer flavor)
    • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
    • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
    • 1/2 teaspoon asafoetida (hing) - optional
    • 2-3 dried red chilies
    • 1-2 green chilies, slit
    • 1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger
    • 5-6 curry leaves
    • 2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped (optional)
    • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
    • 1 medium tomato, finely chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala (optional)
    • 2 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)


  1. Preparation of Dal:

    • Wash the moong dal thoroughly until the water runs clear. This helps in removing any dirt or impurities.
    • In a large pot or pressure cooker, add the washed dal, water, turmeric powder, and salt.
    • If using a pot, boil the dal until it becomes soft and mushy. Keep an eye on it and add more water if required. This might take around 30-40 minutes.
    • If using a pressure cooker, cook for 2-3 whistles on medium heat. Once the pressure releases, open the lid and check the consistency. If it's too thick, you can add some water and simmer for a few minutes.
    • Mash the dal lightly with a ladle or spoon to get the desired consistency.
  2. Tadka/Tempering:

    • In a separate pan or skillet, heat the ghee or oil.
    • Add the cumin and mustard seeds. Once they begin to splutter, add asafoetida, dried red chilies, slit green chilies, curry leaves, and chopped ginger. Fry for a few seconds.
    • If using garlic, add it now and sauté until it turns golden.
    • Add the finely chopped onions and fry until they become translucent.
    • Add the chopped tomato and cook until it's soft and well-cooked, and the oil starts to separate from the masala.
    • Mix in the red chili powder.
    • Pour this tempering over the cooked dal. Mix well. If the dal looks very thick, you can adjust its consistency by adding some hot water.
    • Let the dal simmer for another 5-7 minutes.
    • Finish with garam masala, chopped coriander leaves, and lemon juice. Mix well.

Serve the Moong Dal Tadka hot with rice or Indian bread like roti or naan. Enjoy!
