Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4 people

You will need:
  1. Toor Dal: 1 cup
  2. Chana Dal: 1/4 cup
  3. Mustard seeds: 1/2 tsp
  4. Cumin seeds: 1/2 tsp
  5. Garlic pods: 1 no.
  6. Turmeric powder: 1/2 tsp
  7. Red chillies: 3-4 nos.
  8. Coriander
  9. Water: 1 cup
  10. Oil: 1 tsp
  11. Asafoetida/Hing: 1 pinch
  12. Salt: according to taste

To cook: 
  • Boil the toor and chana dal in a pressure cooker. The chana dal adds thickness to an otherwise liquidy dal. 
  • Once the dal is cooked, add water, salt and coriander and bring to boil.
  • Temper this with oil, hing, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, red chillies and garlic. 
  • Makes a great combination with rotis!
