When we arrived at The Social in Orlando, FL yesterday, I practiced for a couple hours, and then became very hungry. I looked up a farmers market, and lo and behold! —there was a farmers market less than a mile away that closed at 4:00. It was 4:15, but I was determined. I ran to the market as fast as I could, but when I arrived, everything-all the food, all the cash registers-was all packed up. Bullocks! I ran back to the venue, and opened up the pantry bag. I had a pound of dry mung beans, an onion, some garlic, a not-too-old nub of ginger, a spare can of tomatoes, and of course, lots and lots of Indian spices. Having nothing fancy to work with, and also being extremely exhausted, I decided to make a simple dish- one that wouldn’t take too much effort.. Moong dal seemed to be the best option-and I love moong dal, a classic Indian dish.
