An odd combination but popular one when planning dairy meals, Mung beans are those from which beans sprouts are grown. A similar dairy combination is prepared in Bukhara indicating, through a study of their food, the probable community connections.
1. Cook beans in water over moderate heat for 1/2 hour. As green skins rise to surface during cooking process, they should be skimmed off with a slotted spoon or a small sieve & discarded. 2. Add rice, salt, cuminseed, & pepper & continue to simmer mixture over low heat for 1/2 hour more. It should remain moist. Serve warm w/same dairy sauce as is used with Poloni. Serve 4 to 6.
