Dal Curry

Dal is a sort of comfort food for us. It is one among the popular favorites everyone loves to pair with Indian bread or simple fluffy rice. 
A quick and easy recipe which never lets you down! At home we would make a simple meal out of rice & dal and some yogurt. A little pickle by the side is all that is needed to spice up the meal :)

Dal Curry

Dal Curry
1 cup Toor Dal
Water, as required
Salt, to taste
Oil/ Ghee, little 
Few Cumin seeds
1 Onion, finely chopped
1 Tomato, finely chopped
small piece Ginger, finely chopped
2 Green Chillies, slit lengthwise
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/4 tsp Garam masala (optional)
Few Coriander leaves, chopped

  • Rinse and cook toor dal with enough water and little salt until done. I use pressure cooker as it cooks a lot quicker that way. Dal should be soft and mushy now. Safely open the pressure cooker after it cools down. 
  • In a pan, heat some oil/ ghee and splutter cumin seeds. Add the chopped onions and saute it further until it starts to turn brown.
  • Add the chopped ginger and slit green chillies, mix well.
  • Tip in the chopped tomato and saute until it turns soft. Mix in turmeric powder, garam masala (if using), chopped coriander leaves.
  • Now add the cooked dal and stir well. Add water (if required) to get the desired consistency. Adjust the salt on tasting.
  • Remove from fire and garnish with some more coriander leaves.
Notes: Serve hot with rice or chappathi's.
