Instructions
Thoroughly clean lentils and wash couple of times with clean water.Soak for half an hour if you are cooking in a pan. I always cook lentils and beans in pressure cooker. Add daal, water, salt and turmeric powder in a pressure cooker. Put it on a stove without lid, let the first boil come then put the lid on. Cook for 3-5 whistles and switch it off.Let the pressure cooker cool off naturally. Lightly mash cooked daal with the back of the ladle, no need to mash completely. n a heavy bottom pan or kadai heat oil and add cumin seeds.Once they splutter, add hing and onion. Once onion started getting pink, add garlic and ginger. Sauté the mixture for a couple of minutes then add split green chillies.Add chopped tomatoes and cook until completely cooked, then add all the masala one by one. Careful not to burn the spices once you see oil is separating the masala, add boiled daal and check the consistency, if it's too thick add little water. Add salt and bring it to a boil, reduce heat and let it simmer for 10-12 minutes.Now add chopped dill leaves and cook further for a couple of minutes.Switch off the heat.Heat 1tbsp.oil is a small pan, add dried red chilli and thinly chopped garlic, fry the garlic until light brown, then add pinch red chilli powder, once you add red chilli powder, immediately pour on cooked daal.)After pouring second tadka once again re heat daal thoroughly. Squeeze lemon juice and mix well. Serve hot with rice, roti and salad.Enjoy!
