Moong Dalma is a variation of Dalma.
Dalma ,the soul food of every Odiya is nothing but a simple delicious dish with high protein. Combine with rice , that will be most comforting lunch on a day when you don’t want to have non-veg. I have shared this dish before where toor dal was used .Moong Dalma is a variation to that authentic dalma.
This lentil vegetable stew has almost no-oil . You may find hundred of recipes differing in the choice of vegetables and their proportion.So basically there is no particular quantity or measurement to any vegetable that is used in dalma.
In temples they don’t use vegetables like carrot, beans, potato, tomato, cauliflower, which they termed as foreign vegetables, but you can see use of these in other places.Except tomato you can try them in your recipe .
I have used in my recipe elephant foot yam,egg-plant ,pumpkin ,raw-banana ,colocasia and pointed gourd.
