Green Tomato & Moongdal Curry

Green tomato and moongdal curry is a kind mild gravy gets ready very easily which ressembles quite like Palakad famous molagooshyam. Usually this molagooshyam gravy is prepared by adding few veggies like ashgourd, raw bananas and yam, but for a change i used green tomatoes aka pacha thakkali for making molagooshyam style of moongdal curry. Actually i got an opportunity to pluck fresh green tomatoes from our last visit to farm house, back home i prepared the day itself this mild gravy with yellow split moongdal to serve along with hot steaming idlis.

You can serve this quick,delicious and nutritious curry even with rice also you can use carrots,beans,peas like veggies to give more colour to this curry.We prefered this dish prepared with tangy green tomatoes, this recipe suits prefectly for diet conscious peoples, protein rich curry with less oil. Serve this dal based curry with lemon pickle and rice, am damn sure you will have an excellent lunch.Sending this comforting curry to Kalyani'sMagic Mingle and to Ramadan Friendly Recipes by Halal Foodie.


2cups Green tomatoes (chopped)
1/2cup Yellow split moongdal
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Pepper powder
Salt
1tbsp Coconut oil
Few curry leaves
1/4tsp Mustard seeds
1no Dry red chillies
1/4tsp Cumin seeds

Dry roast the yellow split moongdal until they turns golden brown, take it in pressure cooker with chopped green tomatoes,turmeric powder and pepper powder with enough water.

Pressure cook for 3 hisses and put off the stove.

Lightly mash the cooked gravy and add water if needed to adjust the consistency of the curry, meanwhile heat the coconut oil,let splutters the mustard seeds, dry chillies and cumin seeds.

Add immediately the tempered spices to the curry and serve hot with rice or idlis or dosas.
