Mooga ghashi (Moong Curry)

This is a classic Konkani dish. I learnt it after my marriage because this is one of my husband's all time favorite!! Like all other Konkani recipes, coconut is the main ingredient here. So if you love coconut this is a treat for you.


3/4 cup moong beans
1-1/4 cup grated coconut
8-9 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp coriander seeds
7-8 red chillies
2 cloves
1/2 tsp shahjjeera
1 tsp tamarind extract
1 tbsp ghee


1. Pressure cook moong beans so that they are cooked properly.
2. On little bit of oil roast red chillies, coriander seeds,cloves,shahjeera.
3. Grind together this roasted masala with coconut,tamarind extract, 1 tbsp cooked moong, 3-4 cloves of garlic and water. Add enough water to form a smooth paste.
4. In kadhai add cooked beans and masala paste from the grinder. Add enough water to make the consistency of curry. Heat this till it boils. After it starts boiling, add salt and let it simmer for few minutes.
5.Let the curry boil for 3-4 minutes till it gets mixed up nicely.
6. In the separate kadhai make a seasoning by adding ghee and remaining cloves of garlic. Fry garlic till it turns little bit of brown.
7. Switch off the heat of curry and add this tadka to it.

Mooga ghashi is ready. Serve hot with rice.
