Category: Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 8 c Water
  • 1 c Mung beans (dry)
  • 1 c Basmati rice
  • 1/2 c Soy oil
  • 1/2 c Soy sauce
  • 2 -(up to)
  • 3 tb Whole yellow mustard seed
  • 1 tb Basil
  • Ground tumeric
  • Whole corriander
  • Cumin
  • 1 ts Cayenne pepper
  • Black pepper
  • Fennegreek powder
  • Oregano
  • 1 ct Plain yogurt
  • 1 ct Mango chutney


1. Boil water.

2. Mix all ingredients.

3. Boil again.

4. Cover and simmer for 1+ hours.

5. Watch for chili-like consistency.

For good plate presentation, I like to put a reasonable portion on a
plate, and then put a stripe of yogurt and a stripe of chutney (like an
equal sign) on top.

This is a moderately hot dish, so I like to serve it with a cold tobuli
salad, some nan or pita, and a Ravi Shankar CD on the stereo.
