Moong dal usal (Muga dali usli)

Moong dal(muga dali) usli is very dear to most of the Konkanis. Some people eat it as a breakfast and some as a side dish. For me, it is mostly known as a prasad of Ramnavami festival. However you eat it, this is a very tasty and filling dish with or without any combination. I love to cook this because it is very easy and very nutritious. Make it a bit spicy and it goes well with chapathis too(This is just my way of eating it, others might not like this combination).

Ingredients:
1/2 cup moong dal
1 tbl spn fresh/frozen coconut
3-4 green chilies
1/2 tea spn mustard seeds
