Khatta moong is basically a Gujarati cuisine. Loved by all and me being one of them.Had never tasted or made khatta moong before,until i happen to visit my gujju friends place and was served in lunch khatta moong, just went drooling over it was a bit too much for Aunty but i just loved it so much that the very day after returning from Parul’s place soaked moong dal and next day tried my hand on them.a simple recipe with all the ingredients available in kitchen. Many people use curd for this ,but i have used buttermilk (sour) as Aunty made in without much delay let’s get the recipe…..
