    I added a tsp. of garam masala and coriander because my version turned out bland-- I put too much liquid in because I didn't use dried beans. My bad! I garnished w/ fresh cilantro and mango chutney and added 2 cans of beans-- delicious with some tweaking. Next time I'll add fresh ginger. - 2/8/09

    I couldn't find split mung beans, so substituted garbanzo beans (canned) and reduced water to 4 cups. Added ginger, coriander and pepper. Delicious. - 5/15/08

    I've made it twice in a regular pot; didn't see the need for pressure cooker -- but soaking the mung will reduce cooking time. Also added sauteed onions, ginger, pepper, and salt. Very easy and tasteful! I have tried lately adding wild and brown rice to vary the presentation. - 6/20/08

    I made this yesterday and it was delicious! It's a colorful, healthy, and quite tasty mixture of foods. There isn't much salt in this dish, so we added a bit of salt to suit our own taste. I'm looking forward to serving this to my vegetarian friends. - 5/18/08

    Made it tonight in our new pressure cooker, with a combination of veggies that needed to be used, & regular long-grained rice instead of Basmati. Served plain yogurt, Trader Joe's mango-ginger chutney, & sliced mango on the side. Great meal! - 5/14/08

  • I am still learning the pressure cooker business, and will experiment a bit with this. I think it would go great with plain coconut yogurt (dairy free alternative) - 3/11/12

    I haven't tried this yet, but it does sound good. in answer to KDA1981, mung beans are the beans used to grow the common bean sprouts. Your grocery store may have them if it has a good bulk or health food section. - 5/14/08

    What are mung beans? I wonder if Fred meyer would have this in their bulk section? I don't usually go to a health food store...in fact I don't know where one is around here. Fred meyer usually has a good selection of health foods. - 5/14/08
