Important Note: If you want to make this fabulous recipe, you’ll need to soak the mung beans overnight, so make sure you do that the night before!


  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 2 cups whole mung beans
  • 12 cups water
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin seed
  • ¼ teaspoon rock salt (plus more, to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons minced coriander


1. Heat a large stockpot on medium-high heat, add ghee, and then add the presoaked and drained mung beans. Sauté until the lentils are slightly brown and mildly aromatic.
2. Add 12 cups water and boil until the mung beans are fully cooked and individual grains begin to lose integrity, 30 to 40 minutes, or longer if required.
3. Add black pepper, ginger, cumin, and salt. Use a ladle to mash the lentils fully to get a porridge-like consistency.
4. Add lime juice and garnish with coriander.
