  • First of all soak Moong dal for an hour or so, it becomes quite soft when you break with your nails it just splits, you would know it , It even swells up.
  • Once it is well soaked, drain the water completely and keep it aside.
  • Cut the cucumber into thin slices just as shown in picture, you can use the skin too, if you don't mind eating it, and is definitely good for health.
  • Mix Moong dal, cucumber, grated coconut and finely chopped coriander leaves.
  • Take a kadai heat oil in it and then add mustard seeds once they splutter add the chopped green chillies, once they slightly change colour, pour it on top of the cucumber mixture, on it add the pinch of asafoetida.
  • Just before serving add the required quantity of salt and mix everything together and serve immediately.
  • You can also add a squeeze of (1 to 2 tablespoons) lemon juice which is optional, and of course it gives a great taste to the kosambari.
