Sorry for trespassing but landed here via other blogs and, really liked this recipe. Wondering about a couple of things- do you mean the whole green mung? And what is a rice cup measurement? I blogged for a few months and then let it slip into oblivion because I am neither good at clicking pictures nor at IT. Always feel like a "rural villager" in the high-tech foreign land of bloggers here. Thanking in advance for your response to above queries!

Hi sl,

Yes they are whole green moong dal and regarding your other query, it is measurement of electrical rice cooker cup.

enjoy blogging!!!!!!
