About green moong dal
In the traditional Indian village cuisine, whole green moong dal was cooked in clarified butter in a mud pot. The recipe made with sprouted moong dal and turmeric pepper powder, steamed with sesame oil, is recommended in Ayurveda for people suffering from metabolic disorders. Clarified butter enhances the taste and flavour; nevertheless, mustard oil is typically used to prepare a spicy tadka. Rustic mustard oil gives the recipe a tangy, smoky aroma. The recipe is very earthy and tastes best either with rice or roti.

Then it is tossed with tadka of ghee, cumin, garlic and other Indian spices and herbs like cumin seeds, cinnamon stick, cardamoms and cloves. Roadside eateries in India serve the dhaba style green moong dal tadka with freshly prepared tandoori roti.
