Moong dal upma Recipe

Moong dal upma is a popular South Indian breakfast dish made with moong dal (split yellow lentils) and semolina. It is a nutritious and delicious dish that is easy to prepare. The moong dal adds a protein-rich element to the upma, while the semolina gives it a nice texture. This upma is flavored with mustard seeds, curry leaves, and green chilies, giving it a mild spiciness. It is typically served hot with coconut chutney or sambar.
