Green Moong Dal Recipes

Green Moong Dal

Whole Green Moong Dal is a simple high protein, delicious curry recipe made with green lentils (mung beans) in an Instant Pot or a Stovetop pressure cooker that can be served along with roti’s, chapatis, or even rice.

Whole green moong dal is also known as sabut moong dal in Hindi where sabut means ‘whole’.

In Gujarati, it is known as ‘Mag’. Khatta moong is more popular in Gujarati households than this version.

This green moong dal curry is Punjabi-style where onion-tomato masala is cooked first.

You’ll need basic easy-to-find ingredients. It is lightly spiced with basic spice powders. There are no strong-flavored spices (like garam masala or kasoori methi) are added.

It’s simple yet super delicious.

Green moong dal halwa


1 cup green moong dal (split green gram)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup ghee (clarified butter)

4 cups milk

1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder

Chopped nuts (cashews, almonds, pistachios) for garnishing


Rinse the green moong dal thoroughly and soak it in water for about 4-6 hours or overnight.

Drain the soaked dal and grind it into a coarse paste using very little water.

Heat ghee in a heavy-bottomed pan or kadhai over medium heat.

Add the ground moong dal paste to the pan and roast it in ghee until it turns golden brown and the raw smell disappears.

This may take about 15-20 minutes, stirring continuously to avoid burning.

In a separate pan, heat the milk until it comes to a boil.

Once the moong dal is roasted well, carefully pour the hot milk into the pan. Be cautious as it may splutter.

Cook the mixture on low heat, stirring continuously, until the dal absorbs all the milk and becomes thick.

Add sugar and cardamom powder to the mixture and continue to cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves completely and the halwa thickens further.

Once the halwa reaches the desired consistency and starts leaving the sides of the pan, turn off the heat.

Garnish with chopped nuts.

Serve warm and enjoy your delicious Green Moong Dal Halwa.
