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, the moong dal (green gram) is cooked separately and then sauteed along with tomatoes and a pool of flavourful spices. Tomatoes add a kick of tangy flavour to this sabzi. It doesn't take much time to prepare and is also high in 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 wholesome 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. Once the seeds start to crackle, add all the dry masalas. Saute well. Next, we need to add the chopped ginger, green chilies, and garlic. Give it a nice 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 dash of lemon juice for a kick of flavour. Top it with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with roti.
