Ingredients

Moth bean is a tiny legume which is commonly used in north India in dishes like misal pav recipe. I tried this bean only this year after I received it from Wildseed organics.

To be honest I loved this as sundal than as misal. Vj too loved it and finished in no time.

Instructions

2. Add 1 cup water, ⅛ teaspoon asafoetida and required salt. Pressure cook for 5 whistles.

Hint: Let the pressure release by itself, naturally. I like to use this small pressure cooker (affiliate link) for directly roasting and then pressure cooking in it.

3. Once done, drain water if there is too much of it. Mine was perfectly absorbed. Set aside.

4. Add the cooked beans. You can let upto 2 tablespoon of beans cooked water for preventing the sundal becoming too dry.

Top tip

  • Adding bean cooked water gives a moist sundal, otherwise it may be too dry. Note that this may reduce shelf life.
  • Coconut oil adds a good flavor. Adding in different stages especially. Same applies for asafoetida. Using both while tempering and some raw gives a good flavor.
  • Roasting is optional but gives a good flavor as well as texture is firm doing so. But ensure not to roast too much as it may not get cooked.

My notes

  • My pressure cooker is small one and I let 5 whistles. The water was just right. But please make sure that there is enough water to avoid burnt bottom. Because different make and model may need slight adjustments.
  • You can also soak the bean overnight and give just one whistle. If you soak, make sure to drain the water and use fresh water for cooking.
  • I have not washed the bean as it was clean, but after roasting you can give a wash.

Storage

You can make ahead and reserve the coconut part alone. Do it just before serving. This may be handy if you are planning for golu day prasadam for visitors.

Can also refrigerate the leftover and consume within 2 days.
