Fodniche Varan

Many times mom used to make Moogachya Daaliche Varan. I didn't care for it much because I love Toor Daal Varan. But I loved when she gave tempering/FodNi to the same Moog daal varan. I loved to slurp the thin broth.

FodNiche VaraN
Moong Daal Broth
1 cup yellow moong daal, cooked
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp asafoetida

salt to taste
2 - 4 cups water

2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1 sprig curry leaves
1/2 tbsp grated ginger
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 tsp goda masala

1 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped

1. Pressure cook moong daal adding turmeric powder, asafoetida and adequate amount of water. Mash lightly and set aside.
2. Heat oil in a saucepan. Add all the ingredients for tempering.
3. As they sizzle, add cooked daal, 2 cups water, jaggery & salt. Bring to boil.
4. When it comes to a rapid boil, lower the gas and let it simmer. Add more water if necessary.
5. Garnish with cilantro.

Note -
1. This daal is meant to have a thin consistency.
2. Note that the amount of goda masala is very less in this recipe.
