Green Moong Curry 

 

Green moong is a type of lentil that is loaded with flavour. Green Moong Curry is a dish that has a robust body and interesting texture.  It is not only tasty but healthy as well. he recipe here is a kind of comfort food that would be great for a cold day but it is so light that you can have it in the summers as well.
