Masoor Ka Dhall


It was by accident that we picked up a pack of masoor dhall last month and from now on will be picking it often :)

Yup !!! Fell for its taste in the first try. Picked up and all the ingredients that came to my mind and the result was a very delicious side dish for roti :) Some times accidents work much better than preplanned cooking isn't it?!! :)



Masoor dhall - 2 cups
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Green chillies - 2
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Salt - for taste
Lemon juice - 1 tblsp
Milk - 1/2 cup



Cook dhall in pressure pan for four whistles or until mushy.

Smash the cooked dhall using a smasher and keep it aside.

Dice onion, green chillies and tomato finely. Saute the chopped onion, chillies and tomato until soft, add the cooked dhall followed by chilly powder, turmeric powder and salt. Allow it to boil for a while. Simmer the stove and add milk to it mixing it well. Finally switch off the stove and mix in the lemon juice.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve it hot with roti or any Indian bread.

We get buy this whole masoor quite regularly with our groceries. makes a welcome change from the usual lentils. I make it the extremely simple way - jus pressure cook the dal with haldi and salt, and then give it a nice tadka with lots of jeera, hing and dried chilies. Thats the best way to bring out the natural earthy flavor of this dal.
