1.
Wash and rinse moong dal. Once done, soak it in enough water for 1-2 hours.

Take a pressure cooker and add the soaked dal to it. Add three cups of water to the pressure cooker and cook the dal for at least 3 whistles.

In the meantime, take a bowl and add besan, sour curd, red chilli powder and turmeric along with one cup of water. Mix well and let it sit for a while.
4.
In a pan, heat some oil and add jeera, rye, green chillies, and curry leaves. Let the jeera splutter on a medium flame for a few seconds in the pan.
5.
Once done, transfer the boiled moong dal to the pan and mix well. Make sure all the ingredients are combined well.
6.
Cook the dal on a medium flame for 1-2 minutes. Now add the besan-curd mixture to the dal and mix. Let the ingredients combine well and cook on a simmer for 3-4 minutes.
