Methi Dal ( Moong ) is a lip smacking dal recipe with fresh fenugreek greens or methi saag and split yellow lentils or moong dal. It is nutritious, protein packed and goes amazing with phulkas and rice.
A mild seasoning with simple spices add a new flavor to this dish that makes it very different from the staple dal recipes that you are used to making on everyday basis. Yes, it does breaks the monotony on your dining table!
Here we have generously tempered this methi dal with onion and garlic for that distinct aroma n flavors, but you can omit if prefer to make a No onion garlic version, the choice is up to you. Also if you want to make a Zero Oil Recipe, then completely refrain from Tempering or Chowk and cook methi saag along with dal in pressure cooker. Though any dal recipe always tastes better after tempering, but sometimes if you need to restrict your diet due to medical reasons, then this is surely going to help you out. Did we missed to tell that this is also a Diabetic Friendly Recipe?
