A must-have in all North Indian Meals, Dal curry can be made with all the types of Dals.
I had made this countless times, but have always got it wrong. Finally with the help of my maid, I am mastering the art of Dal cooking.
Masoor Dal – 2 handfull
Water – 3cups
Onion – 1
Tomato – 1
Jeera – 1tsp
Turmeric powder – 1/2tsp
Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder – 1/2 tsp
Sambar powder – 1/4 tsp
Green Chillies -2
In a pressure cooker, add oil and Jeera.
Add onion and saute till brown. Add ginger-garlic paste, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder and sambar powder.
Add green chillies.
Add dal, mix well with a little salt and pressure cook to two whistles.
Remove from fire. When the steam is settled, open lid and mash the dal well.
In a pan, add little oil and splutter mustard. Add this to the Dal and garnish with coriander.
