Moong Dal: Indian Mung Bean Soup [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan




  • 1 cup mung beans
  • 2 green chilis, chopped
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 8 curry leaves
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
  • Salt, to taste
  • Water, as needed


  1. Wash the mung beans in water, 2-3 times, until the water becomes almost clear.
  2. In a pressure cooker, add the washed mung beans, along with all the ingredients, and 3–4 cups of water, and mix well.
  3. Cover it, add the weight, and pressure cook for 2 whistles. One whistle on high flame and another whistle on medium flame, or until the mung beans are mushy.
  4. Whisk the cooked mung beans, adjust the consistency with water, and add salt, if required, and then boil for 2–3 minutes.
  5. Serve the soup hot.


You can also cook the soup in a pout, but the amount of time it takes to cook will double.
