This recipe needs good quality ghee. Without this key ingredient, it will fail.
In heated ghee add cumin, green chilly and garlic. Saute for a minute and add soaked Moong Daal. Soaked for thirty minutes is more than enough.
Saute for three to four mins and taste it. It should be soft and without any raw taste. Add chopped coriander, salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder and a chopped up bottle gourd. Mix and then cook covered on low heat for ten to fifteen mins. Do keep checking if it’s drying up and if needed sprinkle a little water.
Best part is when you open the lid and the amazing aroma fills the kitchen.
