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.

  1. Hi Pavani, I have tried this moong dal rasam before, it does taste so different from tuar dal!! But only thing is moong dal smells funny for a while and then it tastes so good!!Thanks!!

  2. pavani, this was my mother’s quick fix for lunch or dinner. I was making it and wanted to check if anyone else has posted it and here i come to see that you have done it long back. This is comfort food for me.

  3. I have a little different recipe from my mom..she cooks the moong dhal seperately first and keep it aside. Then to water add vertically sliced onions, 2 chilles (slit), one tomato, salt and little turmeric. cook untill tomatoes are cooked a little and add dhal to it..after tomatoes are cooked..season it..then let it cool and add lime juice in the end..she says if you add lime juice when its hot or while cooking it might taste bitter. Garnish it with cilantro.

    It’s almost similar to what you had mentioned..
