Hari Moong ki Dal is the split green lentil which makes a simple yet delicious meal along with some rotis or parathas .
Hari Moong ki Dal is one of the most nutritious lentil with many health benefits . It is full of fibre and protein . This lentil is versatile and can be used not only to cook the Dal but one can make a huge variety . The Dal can be used in different forms and for any meal – breakfast , lunch or dinner . One can make Dhoklas , Cheelas or even the Dalwadas .
I made this protein rich Hari Dal as a part of Punjabi Thali where I served the Hari Dal along with Aloo Pasanda , Saunfia Karele and a Warqi Paratha . Warqi Paratha is a flatbread with many many layers and teams up well with Hari Moong ki Dal .
This marathon we are posting from our drafts and I decided to post recipes from Punjab . I had prepared this Thali for Flatbread Special theme and I still had to update most of the recipes . This was my good chance to do so . Hari Moong Ki Dal is the recipe of the Day and trust me a very delicious Dal , which is quick to cook and has lots of health benefits .
