Split green gram, also called mung daal or moong dal in India, is a fantastic vegetarian source of protein. At 100 calories per half cup, it is low-calorie, high in fiber, and full of B vitamins.

You could boil and have mung daal as is, or prepare this simple Sattvic recipe to enjoy the lentil.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup mung daal (split green gram)
  • 1 cup buttermilk (1 part yogurt and 2 parts water, blended until smooth)
  • 1 cup doodhi, grated (bottle gourd)
  • Cilantro leaves
  • ¼tsp turmeric powder
  • ½tsp lemon juice
  • ¼tsp hing (asafoetida)
  • 1tsp vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste

Preparation:

  1. Soak the mung daal in some water for 5 hours. Grind it in a blender until smooth.
  2. Add the buttermilk, doodhi, turmeric, lemon, hing, salt, cilantro leaves, and mix well with a spoon.
  3. If the mixture is too thick, add some more buttermilk.
  4. Set aside for 1 hour.
  5. Grease a pan and spread 1tsp of the mixture in the middle of the pan, as you’d make a pancake.
  6. Cook both sides of the pancake until lightly browned.
  7. Serve hot with green chutney (a spicy mix of cilantro and green chillies).
