Wash moong dal well with water. 

Add fresh water about 2 cups, salt, turmeric powder, asafoetida and pressure cook for 3-4 whistles. You can also cook the dal directly on stove in a deep pan as well, but will take about 15-20 minutes to cook the dal alone. I have cooked the dal in sauce pan.

When the dal is cooking, grind coconut, dry red chillies, coriander seeds, cloves, little water to a paste.

When the dal is cooked, add the ground paste and give a stir.

Then add the tamarind extract, let everything boil together for about 3-4 minutes really well.

Meanwhile heat ghee/oil in a kadai for tempering, splutter mustard seeds, add cumin seeds, curry leaves and fry for about 30 seconds.

Now add finely chopped green chillies, ginger and fry for another 20-30 seconds.

Add the tempering to the cooked dal, let it boil for another 2-3 minutes on low flame.

Finally add chopped coriander leaves and switch off the stove.

Yes, delicious and tempting Moong Dal gravy is ready to be enjoyed, serve it hot with a bowl steamed cooked rice and PotatoMasala. Meanwhile do check out other interesting South Indian Gravies/Dals/Sambars/Rasams here.  Also check out other easy moong dal sambar here
