Legume and Tomatoes: Healthy and Satisfying
This is one of my favorite dish--healthy and easy to prepare. And goes with rice as well as chapati (Indian baked bread). Or you can eat it just plain with a little bit of yogurt.
It is easy to prepare because like a typical Indian, I cook the legume (green mung dal) in the pressure cooker. No overnight soaking or slow cooking. It only takes about 20 minutes to have it cooked in the pressure cooker.
Heat up a little bit of olive oil in a pan and cook some tomatoes with salt, turmeric and chilli powder. When the tomatoes are soft, add the already cooked mung dal and mix it thoroughly into the tomato sauce. Let it simmer for a few minutes before removing from the stove.
