Moong Dal Sambar | Pasi paruppu Sambar
Yellow Moong Dal is rich in proteins. Most of the times I prepare Aracha Sambar or Toor dal sambar, but I prepare this Moong dal Sambar when there is no time to soak dal. Moong Dal cooks fast and doesn't need to be soaked. Moong Dal gives a unique taste to this tiffin sambar. This sambhar prepared with shallots goes well with rice. It tastes heaven with crisp dosa or soft Idli. Please check below for step wise instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian tiffin sambar using yellow moong dal.
