Onions prices are up! Check out this dal recipe that will taste equally good without onions.
¾ cup tuvar dal or masoor dal
2 ½ cup water
1 medium sized tomato (finely chopped)
1-2 green chillies (slit vertically)
6-7 strands of coriander
½ spoon ginger paste
½ tsp jeera
½ tsp saunf
¼ tsp hing
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp red chili powder
2-3 tsp ghee
Water as required
Salt to taste
Add turmeric powder and hing to the dal. Add 2 and a half cups of water. Use a pressure cooker to boil the daal.
Once it is boiled, use a masher to dissolve the dal completely into a thick paste.
In a kadhai, heat some ghee. Add jeera and saunf seeds and fry for a few seconds. Then add ginger paste and stir well so that he rawness of the ginger goes away.
Add green chilies, the spices and fry for a few seconds.
Now add the chopped tomato and cook until the oil floats on the surface.
Then add the cooked dal, salt to taste and stir for about 5 minutes. Add water if required and let it come to a boil. Make sure the consistency is thick enough. Garnish with chopped coriander.
