Pesarapappu pappu/Moong dal

Ingredients:-

Yellow moong dal 1 cup
Onions 2
Garlic 4pods
Turmeric powder 1/4 tbsp
Green chillies 2
For seasoning:-
Oil 1tbsp
Rai 1/4 tsp
Udat dal 1/2tsp
Zeera 1/2tsp
Red chillies 3
Curry leaves few
Hing pinch

Preparation:-
  1. Soak moong dal for 1-2 hrs.
  2. Microwave high for 10-12 min along with chopped onions,green chillies,chopped garlic and turmeric.Cooking time depends upon the microwave.
  3. Add salt and mix well.
  4. Season the dal with red chillies,curry leaves,rai,udat dal,hing and zeera.

This is my mom's recipe and her fav dal.My mom cooks this dal with 2cups of water on a slow flame,until cooked.This goes well with hot rice and avakaya(mango pickle) and can be eaten with hot rotis.You can replace red chillies with red chilli powder.I want the dal in yellow colour so i didnt use red chilli powder.
