Serves 4

1/2 lb goat meat (1" pieces) 1 tbs Black pepper powder
1 cup Roasted Moong dal 1 tsp Chilly powder (optional)
2 Medium Onions (each cut to 8/10 pieces) 3 tbs cooking oil

3 tbs Jeera powder 1 tsp Haldi powder

Vegetables to add

Heat oil. Season with Jeera & Bay leaf. After Jeera splutters add Onion and Haldi. Fry for few minutes then add the meat. Fry the meat for 6/7 min. Add Moong dal and enough water for it to cook. Cover and let it cook. When the meat is almost tender but not well done add all the vegetables you want to add. When vegetables are almost done add Jeera, Black Pepper and Chilly powder. Mix and cover. Serve with rice. It comes out better when Jeera and Black Pepper are freshly ground. Meat can be substituted with Shrimps.
