Mung Dal

Recipe By : Chef Shobhan
Serving Size :8 Preparation Time :0:10

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups mung beans -- soaked overnight
1 tablespoon cocnut oil or another type you like
1 jalapeno pepper -- chopped
1 clove garlic -- minced
1 large onion -- chopped
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon turmeric

Place a prssure cooker on the heat and heat for 30 seconds and then put in the oil. Once melted add the onion garlic and jalapeno pepper. Saute for about 4 minutes and then add the beans. Make sure you drain and rinse the beans thoroughly before you put them in the pan.

Cover the bean with water. Make sure the water is about 1/2 to 1 inch above the beans.

Turn on to a high heat and place the lid on your pressure cooker.

Bring to boil. Once the top of the pressure cooker is rocking turn the heat down to medium and time for 5 minutes. Then turn off and wait until the pressure button on the cooker has gone down. Then you can open the cooker. Add salt to your taste and serve either as a soup or with brown rice. Its also really nice with lightly sauted collard greens.

Mung beans are very high in protein.
