Carrot Moong dal

Carrot - 2 no. grated
Red onion - 1/2 finely chopped
Tomato - 1/2 finely chopped
Moong dal - 1/2 cup
Water - sufficiant to cook moong dal (I use almost 2 cups)
Green chillies
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 spoons
Mustard seeds - 1/4 spoon
Cumin seeds - 1/4 spoon
Coriander powder (optional) - 1/2 spoon
Turmeric - 1/4 spoon

Method of preparation
Soak moong dal before. If you do not have that much time, then soak moong dal in water and microwave it for a minute or two. Take a kadai and add oil to it. Add mustard seeds and after they splutter add jeera(cumin seeds to it). Now add green chillies, asafoetida ( a pinch), curry leaves (optional) and then red onions. Once onions are slightly done add the grated carrot and then moong dal and add sufficiant water. Cover and cook for couple of minutes only. Remove the cover and let the moong dal cook completely. Add turmeric, salt and coriander powder to it and mix. Add coriander leaves and your dish is ready to serve.
