Don't kill me for not keeping a promise. Anyway, aren't promises made to be broken ;) Two weeks ago I'd assured you of a healthy recipe. And the post got so delayed that we've turned more healthy than our two-weeks-ago Self! That's the bad news. 
                                                                                                      The good news is that this Green, if followed conscientiously, will make your friends turn green with envy. At your svelte figure :) Ok, now smile. Please people! Don't make me feel so guilty. There's another good news. This is so super-easy to make & so fantastically filling that you'll forget about the delay. Promise :)
                                                                                              Chilke Wali Moong, guys & gals. For nutrition & a fab figure!
                                                                                                                                      Ingredients:[serves 2-3]
1. 1/2 cup whole green moong- soaked for 2 hrs
2. 1 small onion- cubed
3. 1 large tomatoo- cubed
4. 1-2 green chillies- chopped (optional)
5. 1/4 tsp turmeric
6. Dollop of butter(optional)
7.  2 -2 1/2 cup water
8. Salt to taste
1. In a pressure cooker, heat water. 
2. Add the soaked moong, onion, tomato, chillies(if using), turmeric powder & salt, and pressure cook on medium flame to 3-4 whistles.
                                                                                                                                              Serve hot with a dollop of low-fat butter. Tastes equally yum without it too! 

Dekha, bola tha na, itna easy ki gussa bhool jaoge ;)

Eat with roti/chawal if you like. Keep the consistency thick for that perfect taste. 

For a variation, fry the onion & tomato and pressure cook the soaked moong in it. That will entail the use of 1-2tsp oil/ghee/butter.
