Sharing is caring!

Lasooni Moong Dal Tadka is a garlicky dal made with moong dal and is mildly spiced. This can be served with pooris or rotis and is very quick to make.

In the current cooking agenda that I have until April, I have too many pooris or rotis to make. So one of the frequent side dishes to make for this bread is some dal with lentil.

When I made a spiced stuffed poori, this Lasooni Moong Dal paired very well. When it is a poori, I have to make a chana masala and it ends up that for elders I make some dal. Since I love garlic, the flavour of garlic with moong was heavenly.

This is for the second day of Dazzling Dals for the BM#110.

  1. My husband loves dal with garlic – that is how he ate growing up. Will have to try your moong dal with garlic – I am sure the family will LOVE it.

  2. Dal with garlic is always a bomb. This one with moong dal has so much flavor and simple to make too! Delicious…

  3. I am noticing that you are making a dal, chole and a sweet dish to go with each poori variety and each set is turning into a mini thali. This meal sounds wonderful too.
