This side dish goes well with rice during fasting.My Mother-in-law does her fasting regularly on friday's as it is No garlic-onion-tamarind-lemon day.When ever she visit us i will be always confused what is to be cooked on friday's avoiding those basic ingredients,finally she helped me preparing this dish which tastes good as it is.

pinch of turmeric
salt
for Tadka:
1 tbsp ghee
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
pinch of hing
1 tsp jeera
5-6 Curry leaves
1 tbsp green chilli finely chopped

Method:
Pressure cook moong dal for 3 whistles and simmer it for 5-6 mins.
In a Tadka pan ,heat ghee,crackle mustard seeds,jeera,fry green chillies,curry leaves,hing and
pour this tadka to the moong dal and add salt,turmeric and cook for 2-3 mins.(Add enough water to the required consistency).Add chopped corriander at the end and mix well.
Serve hot with rice, Fry and pickle.

Lemon juice can be added to the dal.

Even though I never fast, it's great to have such plain fare every once in a while.
