Everyone has their own way of cooking this green gram sabzi. I too make in a different way, but after tasting this dal in my friends place, almost a year back, i decided to make this in that way since we all like that . And another important thing is it is very simple and easy to make . Enjoy this green moong dal subzi with roti or jeera pulao.

Hi Jeyashri,

This is such a healthy and easy gravy for chapathi. Have made it twice and it was yummy.
