Mung Bean and Lentil Stew with Broccoli and Mini Peppers. Mung Bean and Lentil Stew with Broccoli and Mini Peppers. Read finicky eater  = me. Yup some days I just cannot stand certain vegetables. You would think that it is totally counter intuitive, that I hide the veggies in the stew right. Since "I" make the stew and I know that the vegetable in question is in it. But, I do eat the vegetable in it without an issue. And This is another way to get me to eat Broccoli. Hidden in a lentil stew.

Add a Tablespoon or so cashew cream to the dal before serving. Drain the water and keep ready. In a pressure cooker, add the oil and heat at medium. When the oil is hot, add cumin seeds and let them get fragrant. Add dried red chili, bay leaf, chopped onion and saute until golden. Add in the chopped tomato.
