Tok-Misti Moong Dal or Sweet-sour Moong Lentil

All states across India eats Dal or lentil and various combinations. Some will eat with main dish of rice or Roti and some just with rice. Some will have it sweet-sour. Some will also make Pakodes or fritters from Dals. Dals are also stuffed in Parathas or Naans or other Rotis. Dals are stuffed in Kochuri or Indian fried Bread and enjoyed too.

I made Tok-Misti Moong Dal as Moong Dal is my favourite. It’s a easy dish and very refreshing in this summer heat. I enjoyed with steamed rice. Friends and fans, do write your feedback / comments, thank you.
