Pesarapappu Charu (Moong dal Rasam)

This is one of my very favorite dishes and I miss my mom’s pappu charu. It is very simple to make and very delicious. I don’t know if it’s in the dal my mom uses or in the way she makes it, my dish never tastes like hers. This is my comfort dish that I makes me feel I’m back with my mom.
