Dal or lentil is very important protein for Bengalis. Our meal is incomplete without a bowl of Dal by the side of our plate. Dal is a staple food for not only us but also for every Indian.

This Mug Dal , it can be cooked in various ways. Sometimes we cook this Dal with fish head which we call Maacher Matha diye Mug Dal. That is a non vegetarian recipe. Sometimes we cook this with veggies which we call Sobji Diye Moong Dal. That’s a vegetarian recipe. This Sabji Diye Moong Dal is mostly cooked during winter. Fresh veggies like beans, carrot, peas are used in cooking. I have cooked this Dal this time as my father suddenly bought a fresh Gobi and mother was in no mood to cook curry. So I thought of incorporating the Gobi in this way.
