Suva Moong Dal is a tasty and healthy treat, with the pleasant taste of cooked moong dal and the herby taste of dill, perked up with a simple tempering of cumin and onions.

Dill being alkaline in nature, this dal is a "go for it" dish for those who complain about acidity. Onions too are very effective against acidity, and this satiating dal is only mildly spiced, so you can enjoy it comfortably without harming your tummy.

Also do try other stomach-friendly dals like Hariyali Dal and Mixed Dal .

Tasty!!! Healthy and good source of protein. Suva lends a great taste to the dal. I have this fairly often.
