A Few Final Thoughts

Finally, these thoughts are also available in the recipe card so that you can print them:

  • Serving: Serve it hot rice, chapatis, or rice.
  • Substitutions: You can replace moong dal with toor, malka, or masoor dal. However, I recommend using moong dal for the best results. 
  • Caution: Don’t overcook the dal. The time for cooking this dal in pressure cooker depends on the type of pressure cooker and the burner used.
