2 Unique Mung Dal Recipes You Never Heard Before

2 Unique Mung Dal Recipes You Never Heard Before

Whole mung two ways

We’re collaborating with Sangeeta Khanna, a cuisine and nutrition consultant of Health Food Desi Videshi to create a series of recipes for Conscious Cookbook. This month, she created a sweet and savoury recipe using our Green Gram or Whole Mung. 

Whole mung is full of proteins, good quality fats and fiber that is great for gut health. Mung dal has been revered greatly in Ayurveda and it is recommended for everyone from children, young adults and even in old age. This duo of recipes made with Whole Mung comes together in just about 15 minutes.
