Rekha,

Yes, matki, muth, and moth dal are all the same.

Matki is one among the many pulse grains available in the market. It actually resembles Moong/Green gram dal in shape/texture but is different in taste, size and color - typically light or dark brown depending upon the place where it is grown.

I understand this is a delicacy from Maharastra - I in fact came across this when we were in Nipani in early 80s - it was quite popular there as a side dish with Rotis/Chapathis and sometimes with rice for lunch. It has to be sprouted and combined with peanuts in a proper proportion to prepare the masala. What you need to have:

- Matki/Moth beans - 1 cup

- Peanuts - 1/4 cup

hi

Moth bean

Vigna acontifolia

Also known as muth, mot, mat, haricot, papillon or dew bean.

A very small bean ranging from pale beige to reddish brown in colour, with a flavour similar to that of mung beans.

Mainly grown and used in India and only exported when there is sufficient after the home market is supplied.

Thailand, on the other hand, grows them for export to Japan.

Northern Indian cooking simmers these miniature beans with other vegetables, and all over India the split, soaked and fried muth bean appears as part of the spicy snack known as sev.

Moth bean is also called Matki or mat bean

Moth bean / Matki is a small, drought-resistant annual trailing herb with small yellow flowers and deeply lobed leaves, grown especially in dry parts of South Asia for its tiny (3-4 mm) edible beans, which range in color from light brown to dark reddish brown.

The sprouted beans taste somewhat sweet. Matki is very famous in Maharastrian cuisine. The beans are soaked overnight to make them sprout. These sprouted beans are used for Salad, Misal or Usal.

You can find Matki in your Indian Grocery or you can buy online from

Yes, Matki and moth dal are the same. The best way to consume is to sprout it and then relish. Soak it in water for 7 to 8 hours. Then tie it in a muslin cloth and leave it overnight and see that the cloth is damp. You can see small sprouts coming out. These sprouts are so nutritious. If you leave it for a day or two, u can see sprouts growing and you can make usal and enjoy. Avoid cooking the sprouts as they may break and the characteristic of it disappears.

Chop onion, tomatoes, coriander leaves, salt,chaat masala. Add all this to the sprout and sprinkle salt and lemon juice. This is an excellent meal by itself if you avoid the sev topping.

Yes people use matki and moth dal interchangeably..It actually resembles with whole(sabut)Moong/Green gram dal in shape/texture but is different in taste, size and color. It is brown in color. some people use moth dal for whole(sabut) masoor dal which is muddy brown in colour. check out this website for visuals Black one is whole Udarth, Green one is whole Mung, Brown one is Matki/Moth http://outofthegarden.files.wordpre… And also check out this for Whole Masoor which is often mistakenly use as Moth dal.. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2200…

those three are same .moth beans /Matki/Muth are same .

These small brown beans have a yellow interior. Moth have a strong, earthy aroma and a rich nutty flavor. Moth dal cook in little over an hour and don't need to be soaked. It is usually cooked with spices and grated coconut, or boiled and pureed in thick curries and soups.

see one curry with that dal in the link http://enjoyindianfood.blogspot.com…

They are same dal.

For your king information , "In Marathi people call it as Matki" , "In gujrathi people call it as Moth"

So they are same, just an linguistic difference
