Green Moong Dal Sabji - Pasipayaru Kootu - Side dish for Roti, Poori and Rice

Green moong dal sabji - simple homestyle sabji for roti and rice. Several dal or sabji dishes that are made with lentils, we prefer to cook the lentils in a pressure cooker which will be cooked softly and then other ingredients are added for flavours. In this green gram sabji, I have not cooked the green moong dal in a pressure cooker. Instead, the green moong dals are soaked overnight and then the dals is cooked along with the onions and tomatoes. The dals look beautiful in the sabji and the taste was so yummy. We had this dish in a restaurant as a side dish for meals. The taste of the moong dals along with the crunchy onions and tomatoes was so nice. As we are cooking the dal in the kadai, it will take around 30 to 40 minutes to cook completely. So make sure to soak the dals for 8 to 10 hours for perfect results. Do not add salt while cooking the dal, as it delays the cooking time. Now let's see how to prepare this sabji with step by step instructions.
