Hi dearies!! It's been a long week and the group of words"THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY" seems to be the line for me :) This week was busy as I had to complete all the pending work that I had piled for 'later'( am sure many of us do that) It's not only the work but my new interest in Warli painting that has kept me busy...believe me it's addictive and interesting.
After all that ranting let's get to business :) Whole Moong green is one of my favourites not only for health reasons but also it's pleasure to work with...it easily takes in any kind of experiment that one would want to try...and the combination of spices and vegetables that one can use with it is infinite :) Today's recipe is whole moong stir fry..... simple and delicious...here's the recipe:
