Whole moong dal kadi is a tasty quick Indian recipe. Whenever I feel lazy and not in mood of preparing many items I prefer making simple dal kadi and I will have it along with plain rice, raw onion and papad. It is basicallly a combination of whole green moong dal and curd. It goes well with rice.


  • Whole green grams (moong) 1/2 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Skimmed milk yogurt (Curd) 1 1/2 cups
  • Gram flour (besan) 2 tablespoons
  • Turmeric powder 1/4 teaspoon
  • Ginger paste 1 teaspoon
  • Green chilli paste 1 teaspoon
  • Sugar 1 teaspoon
  • Oil 1 tablespoon
  • Asafoetida a pinch
  • Mustard seeds 1/2 teaspoon
  • Cumin seeds 1/2 teaspoon
  • Cloves 3-4
  • Cinnamon 1- inch stick
  • Fenugreek seeds (methi dana) 1/4 teaspoon
  • Curry leaves 8-10
