Mooga saaru upkari (green gram rasam )

Saaru upkari is really a simple and authentic Konkani dish . This is one of the easiest recipes.  We can prepare this with any pulses.  It can be eaten  like a soup and good side dish for rice too. The lovely aroma of garlic seasoned  into the dish makes  it  mouth watering.   This is my son’s favourite and he likes to eat this with rice and  spicy fish fry.


Moong/green gram                           1 cup

Green chillies                                      3 to 4

Red chilli powder                               ½ to 1 tsp

Garlic                                                    7 to 8 flakes crushed

Salt to taste

Oil for seasoning


Pressure cook the moong with  salt and slit green chillies with 2 ½ cup of  water till it becomes  soft  ( cook for 3 to 4 whistles).

Let it cool for some time  then open the  lid,  if you need more  gravy add little more water then boil it for 5 min.

Heat oil in seasoning pan,  add crushed  garlic fry till light brown then add red chilly powder for a min.   Pour this on cooked moong.  Serve with hot steaming rice and pickle/spicy fish fry.
