Cooking With Seeds Event - Yellow Moongdal

This is my first host event, feeling so happy need to thank Priya who is writing at Priya‘s Versatile Recipe for giving such a wonderful opportunity.  
Most of you might know about this event, priya was conducting this for past three years. As the name says Cooking With Seeds we use to select one seed per month and using that seed ad main ingredient we need to prepare our dishes and summit here.
In Indian cooking Seeds or Legume or Lentils play main role in our each meal, I need to say without this our meal never completes. This month I choose Yellow Moong dal which is nothing but skin removed split mung beans.
Yellow Moong is a good source for protein and dietary fiber; it’s also rich in potassium, B complex vitamins and calcium. One more thing is it’s easy to digest when compared with other lentils. It’s always good to start yellow moong for infants first.
