Week 4 Day 2 of BM #57 -
Today check out this ever so popular dal from the Western part of India. My brother boasts that this is one dal which he can cook to perfection. I had prepared this meal as part of a Maharashtrian meal.
Toor Dal 3 Tbsp
Chana Dal 3 Tbsp
Moong Dal 3 Tbsp

Lemon Juice as needed
Seasoning(Cooking Oil 2 tsp, Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp, Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp, Asafoetida 1/4 tsp)
Method Of Preparation -
Wash all the Dals and pressure cook adding about 2 cups of water.
After the pressure is released from the cooker, mash the dal.
In a heated pan, add oil and add the rest of the seasoning ingredients.
After the mustard seeds pop, add the coriander-cumin powder and garam masala mixed in water to the seasoning.
Allow it to sizzle for a few seconds and pour it into the dal.
Sprinkle salt and let the dal simmer for a few minutes.
Remove from heat and squeeze in some lemon juice.
Serve it with Rice for a comforting meal.
