Dal Moong With Satpura- Sindhi Cuisine

Today I cook “Dal Moong with Satpura” from Sindhi Cuisine, this recipe is adapted from Vaishali’s blog Ribbon’s to Pasta’s. Satpura is Indian flatbread or layered paratha, Sat means seven and Pura means layered which cooked as parathas. Dal moong is combination of two types of moong, one is yellow gram and second is green split grams which cooked separately and assemble together in one bowl. Garnish with spices, onion and chutney.

Wiki says “Sindhi cuisine refers to the native cuisine of the Sindhi people from Sindh, Pakistan. The daily food in most Sindhi households consists of wheat-based flat-bread (phulka) and rice accompanied by two dishes; one is gravy and second dry. Today, Sindhi food is eaten in many countries including India, where a sizeable number of Sindhis migrated following the Partition of British India.”
