Tadkewaali Masoor ki Daal



Daals and pulses form a very improtant part of our Indian diet and we use them almost every day. Daal chawal is the staple diet of more then 50 % Indian population. Usually tuvar daal ( arhar daal ) is commonly used in our meals but I found that masoor daal too is tasty and make it a point to use this occasionally . 

I got this recipe from one of my friends and tried it . The daal is very simple and yet the flavors come out very nicely. This daal has to be little thick and tastes very nice with paratha or jeera rice.


 Sending this to Srivalli's   cooking from cookbook challenge ( CCC ) .







Ingredients :

1 cup.......................masoor daal
3 to 4 ...................dry red chillies
2 sprigs................curry leaves
1/2 tsp..................mustard seeds
1/2 tsp..................cumin seeds
1 tbsp..................ginger chilly paste
1/2 tsp..................turmeric
1/2 tsp..................amchoor ( dry mango powder )
1 tsp....................sugar
salt
2 tbsp.................oil




Method :

Wash and boil the masoor daal in a pressure cooker till soft .

Mash it and add ginger chilly paste, turmeric, amchoor, sugar and salt to it.

Add some water but don't make it too thin.

Give it a boil.

In a small vessel make a tadka by heating oil.

When the oil is hot add mustard , cumin, hing, dry chillies and curry leaves.

Pour this over the daal and immediately cover daal with the lid.

This ensures that all the flavors get mixed well in the daal.

Serve this daal with paratha or plain pulav.
