place on high heat over stove.
Add onions and stir till slightly golden brown and add
methi and dill then add the moong/rice mixture and stir
Add garlic heeng and green chilies, add 1-1 ¼ cups of
boiling water and bring to full boil. Slow heat to about 4
on stove and cover with lid. Simmer at this very low heat
setting for about 20-25 minutes.

or spoon. Serve immediately with Gujarati Kadhi.
