It seems like a lot of work using the whole moong with skin on and then discarding the skin after soaking? What difference in taste or texture is there if you started off with the split skinless moong? Just soak it in water overnight, drain and then blend it in a modern day blender? I accept that the old ways usually are the best, but too many of us have moved on without stay at home wives or mothers and time is of essence to live the fuller lives these days.
