Vatle Varan

When I have had heavy food for few days and feel like having something simple and light and yet tasty then I remember this humble daal which is very very comforting .
This when served with a dollop of ghee, squeezed lemon and accompaniments like simple talasan or phodi is just yummy .
Should taste it to believe it.

Ingredients :

1 cup ...................Tuvar daal
2 to 3 tbsp ...........fresh grated coconut
3 o 4 .................... green chillies
2 tsp....................jeera
1 tsp ...................turmeric powder
1/2 tsp..................asaefotida (hing)
salt

Method :

Soak the tuvar daal for 1 hour in water.
Pressure cook it till soft.
Grind the coconut along with green chillies and jeera.
Remove the daal from cookeer add turmeric powder , hing , salt and the ground masala.
Mix the daal properly and cook it for 5 minutes.
Serve it with hot rice topped with a dollop of ghee and sqeezed lemon.
