Furthermore, this simple dal recipe can be made in numerous ways. For example, most of the Indian kitchen has a pressure cooker. So, for this dish, I have used both a pressure cooker to cook moong dal and a stovetop for sauteing veggies and tadka. Alternatively, you can use an instant pot or directly make it in an open pan.

Dal is one of my very favorite dishes because of how quickly it is made. In general, dal is easy to cook, and moong dal cooks really fast, so this whole recipe is done within 25 minutes.

Further, tempering dal in ghee/oil is a vital step as the spices like ginger, garlic, seeds will release an aromatic fragrance. So do not miss it. Also, dal can be tempered with either ghee or any cooking oil. Alright, let's get started!
