  • Wash quinoa + mund dal and transfer them to a large bowl. Add 3-4 cups of hot water. Soak for 30 minutes.
  • *After 30 minutes* Drain and set aside.
  • Set a large, non-stick cooking pot over medium heat. Add oil.
  • Once it's hot, add mustard seeds + cumin seeds. Stir and let them splutter for 30-40 seconds - or until the cumin is dark-brown.
  • Add onion + ginger + garlic + green chilies + asafoetida. Stir-saute for 3-4 minutes, or until the onion is translucent.
  • Next, add tomatoes + turmeric powder + Kashmiri red chili powder + salt + pepper. Stir-saute for 5-6 minutes, or until the tomatoes are completely mushy.
  • Now add the quinoa & mung dal + green beans + carrots + green peas + water. Mix well.
  • Cover the pot and cook over low-medium heat for 30-35 minutes. Stir occasionally (every 8-9 minutes).
  • Once it's done, add lemon juice + cilantro. Give it a quick mix. Turn off the heat.
  • Transfer to serving bowls and top it up with vegan butter (optional) + your fav garnishings. Serve hot.
