Many Indians are mostly vegetarians. There is a section of people who cannot do without their meat, chicken or fish daily. For their protein source, they will make do with even withsome boiled eggs, but they have to have their animal protein.

For hard core vegetarians who do not take any meat, chicken, fish or eggs, they have to look out for other sources for their daily protein intake. Lentils and beans are the main source of protein along with any milk products and the now trending quinoa, amaranth etc .

We love our dhals and I often try to include some protein in our daily meals with dalithoy, alasande beeye saaru upkari (black-eyed peas curry), shahi lobia masalaetc to be served with rice or chapattis.

Chilkewali mung dhal curry or split mung bean dhal (“chilkewali” is "with skin or husk" in Hindi) is one such dhal curry. Split mung bean dhal has more nutrition than regular split yellow mung beans because of the skins still on them. Although they give a greenish color to the dhal, we love to enjoy it once in a while.
