Note: This recipe tastes great with whole green mung beans too. Follow the instruction below.
Soak the Mung beans in water for 3-4 hours and then cook or pressure cook till soft. If you do not have time to soak, then just put them in a pressure cooker or rice cooker and boil till soft. Normally, it should take 30-40 mins for boiling till soft without soaking and pressure cooking.
