GREEN MOONG DAL
Wash green moong dal with water 2-3 times. Soak the dal in 3-4 cups of water for 30 minutes.
Drain the water and add the soaked dal to a pressure cooker. Add 4 cups of water, turmeric powder, and salt, and mix well.
Close the lid of the pressure cooker and cook for 1 whistle on high heat. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 10 minutes.
Remove the cooker from the heat and let the pressure release naturally. Open the lid and whisk the dal using a wire whisk.
Check for salt and add more if needed. Add some boiling hot water if the dal is thick for your liking. Add lime juice and mix well.
Heat ghee in a small pan over medium-high heat.
Once the ghee is hot, add garlic and fry until it turns light brown in color, stirring frequently.
Add asafetida and cumin seeds and let them crackle for 4-5 seconds.
Switch off the heat and add red chili powder and mix using a spoon.
Pour the tempering immediately over the dal and mix well. Serve hot.
