Moong dal is split yellow lentils from mung beans that have had their outer black coating removed.  Moong daal kichadi is made especially during the Ramzan fasting time. This is a sweet dish and it is called Kichadi. This kichadi is not the kind that you would have on a traditional Kerala sadya. It is a quick dessert, healthy and a good dish for kids.

kichadi is made with rice and mung beans without skin. In Kerala, it is also used, with coconut milk and jaggery, to make a type of payasam.
