After finishing a pile of work today, I was feeling lazy to cook the meal.But at last I have managed to cook a simple meal for my family. The yellow split Mung dal is a food that has been used for detoxifying purposes for thousands of years in both Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese medicine. Yellow mung dal are green mung beans that have been hulled and split. This easily digestable legumes combined with green veggie and spices, helps balance all three doshas ,Vatta Pitta and Kapha. Mung dal is high in fiber, low in saturated fat and sodium, and contains no cholesterol.



Another ingredient is Sugar snap peas which are delicious and very easy to cook. Unlike snow peas, we can use whole parts of these peas.
