This kacha moong dal recipe is just another way of making moong dal in a simple Bengali way. With just a handful of ingredients, you can make this flavourful yellow Indian lentil that goes perfectly well with a bowl of hot rice and a wedge of lime. One of the primary reasons behind the popularity of moong dal recipes is that it is very quick to make. If you have a stovetop pressure cooker or an Instant Pot, you can easily put together this in a matter of a couple of minutes.
Wash the Moong Dal very nicely till you get clear water. Pressure cook it with water, salt, dried bay leaf, and a drizzle of oil. Allow it to whistle 2-3 times and turn the heat off. Let the cooker depressurize itself.
Now, heat some oil in a pan and temper it with Panphoron, green chilies and hing (asafoetida).
As they splutter, pour the cooked dal.
Add the sugar, fennel powder and ginger paste. Mix well.
Now, add water as required and check for seasoning by adding salt. Let it simmer for couple of minutes before turning the heat off.
Serve hot with rice.
