A very simple yummy option for breakfast which can be prepared in minutes . You just have to soak the masur daal previous night .
2 cups - masur daal
1 tsp - mustard seeds
5-6 - curry leaves
2 - 3 - green chillies (finely chopped )
5/6 - garlic flakes ( crushed or grated )
1/2 tsp - hing
1 tsp - turmeric powder
salt as per taste
oil (preferably coconut oil)
Wash thoroughly and soak the masur daal in water the previous night or at least for 4 to 5 hours .
In a pan heat oil and splutter mustard seeds .
Then add finely chopped chillies , curry leaves , grated garlic , hing and turmeric powder .
Add the drained daal and stir fry for 5 minutes.
Now add salt , sugar and 2 cups of warm water and cook covered with a lid .
If needed can add little more water .
Serve hot garnished with coriander leaves and grated coconut.
You can use other oil too but cooking in coconut oil imparts a lovely flavour to this dish .
