Fansi Moong wadi Nu Shaak/ Fansi moong wadi sabji is a quick and easy dish made from French beans and dry moong wadi (split moong bean chunks). It is balanced with greens and proteins and is served with hot chapati.
Moong or Mung Wadis are chunks of split yellow moong bean paste that have been sun-dried. When cooked in a sauce, these dry brittle chunks soak up the flavor of the sauce and become spongy and delicious. They are readily available in the stores. Many people also prefer to make them at home and store them for a year. They are a good source of protein and very quick to make.
Moong wadi is very versatile and can be used in many dishes. It tastes good in tomato based gravy or when cooked with yogurt or when stirred fried with veggies such as cabbage, beans, and potato. It tastes equally good with rice cooked with spices.
This recipe shows how to cook mong wadi with french beans. Everyone at my home loves it. I serve it with chapatis and yogurt. My son loves to sprinkle some grated cheese over it.
It can be enjoyed by people following a vegan diet.
Hope you enjoy the recipe and do not forget to leave your comments!
