When one passionate foodie meets another passionate foodie, what would you do?  You become best pals, don't you agree? Mine and Jaya's friendship is not even a year old, but it seems like we know each other for years. I met Jayashree virtually on Facebook through one of the group. We became very close friends since we created our facebook group 'Desi Bloggers Connect'. She is a dedicated and enthusiastic food blogger who creates delicious, tasty yet easy to prepare recipes. I love all her Karnataka specialities and can't wait to try them in my own kitchen.

Mug or Mag ni daal also known as yellow moong daal.

I was so delighted and honoured when Jayashree of Evergreendishes request for the guest post and that when I decided to share this delicious and healthy Gujarati daal recipe. A really tasty and protein packed dish that is perfectly suitable for vegan too, also it is made without onion and garlic thus this recipe can be prepared during fasting season when such ingredients onion and garlic are prohibited.

We Gujarati try to eat a well-balanced meal every day and when we prepare a thali, we make sure that we cook everything making sure that in the one meal, all flavours and nutrients can be found. So for protein, we make at least two dishes, and whenever there is Gujarati kadhi on the menu, Mug Ni Chutti daal, automatically becomes a side dish in the thali.

BTW Chutti translates Sukhi in Hindi and Dry in English - Dry Yellow Moong Daal Sabji
