Nandita Nataraj reveals her grandmother’s secret recipe for Hara Moong Masala.
By Nandita Nataraj

The hara moong masala is one of my favorite dishes. This recipe is from my grand mother who to me, is the world’s finest cook. This dish is very simple to put together. And yet, it tastes like you have spent a long time preparing this. Unlike other north indian curries, this curry does not include Garam masala. Instead, the Pav bhaji masala is used to spice this Dish. This healthy and high protein dish, is definitely a crowd pleasing one.  This curry, goes great with either rotis, pooris or rice.
