Bengali Chicken Curry
Dhal is usually a soupy dish that is eaten with rice or roti as a high protein dish. There are many different types of lentils and many different ways to prepare them. This dish is a classic Gujarati style of preparing a slightly different dry (sooke) lentil dish.
Mung beans or moong need to be cooked through and the easiest way to do this is in a pressure cooker. They only take about 7 minutes under high pressure or on the stove top they need about 30 minutes simmering.
If you don't have asafoteda then you can cook this with onions and garlic just saute them in a little oil and then follow the remaining recipe.
