Mugh misunderstandings

I was given a recipe for durban style mugh which i totally misunderstood.. i heard take all the ingredients and boil them together.. so that is what i did raw onions, with raw tomatoes with all the spices and the raw mugh and then i just made it boil and boil and boil till it was done.. madala calls it mugh style 2.. he prefers mugh style 1 where you make the vagaar first and then add boiled mugh to it.. apparently the durban style one is my style 1 anyway.. and you suppose to make the vagaar first.. but it wasn’t bad at all mugh style 2 and it was oil less and healthy.. with all the condiments like achaars and vinegar they all taste the same at the end.

Nani Ma – so how do you eat your mugh and roti? everyone seems to have their own style..

History of Mugh

Mung bean, also known as green bean, choroko (in Swahili), mung, mongo, moong, moog (whole) / moog dal (split) (inBengali , Marathi), mash bean, munggo or monggo, green gram, golden gram, and green soy, is the seed of Vigna radiata which is native to Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan. The split bean is known as moong dal,Pesara [పెసర] (Telugu), which is green with the husk, and yellow when dehusked. The beans are small, ovoid in shape, and green in color. The English word “mung” derives from the Hindimoong.

The mung bean is one of many species recently moved from the genus Phaseolus to Vigna and is still often seen cited as Phaseolus aureus or Phaseolus radiatus. These variations of nomenclature have been used regarding the same plant species
