KHATTI MITHI MOONG (SWEET & SOUR MUNGO BEANS)

Moong beans provides very high quality protein, that is rare in most Indian regional cuisine. Whole moong bean is cooked in several ways, but mostly used for making sprouts. Here is a very flavorful and healthy moong bean dry curry, which goes well with rice or roti. No onion and garlic are used super simple to cook, yet tastes great!
