Masoor Dhal/ Masala Dhal

 As lentils are the main source of proteins for vegans and vegetarians, it is important that we explore the variety of lentils to satiate the palate of the vegetarian connoisseurs. I have experimented with masoor dhal recently and was impressed with the outcome :)



Ingredients:

1 cup of Masoor dhal
1 onion
3 cloves of garlic
1 green chilly
1 tbsp of oil
coriander as garnish
salt as required

Seasoning:

1/2 inch- stick of cinnamon
2 pieces of bay leaf
2 cloves

Grinding:

1 large chopped tomato
1/8 tsp of turmeric
1/2 tsp of red chilly powder
1/2 tbsp of coriander powder
1 tbsp of cashew nuts
1 tsp of cumin seeds

Preparation:

1. Grind the ingredients mentioned above together. Slice the onion and garlic lengthwise.
2. In the preheated pan add oil. Add the seasoning, as the nice aroma comes add onion and garlic.
3.Saute for a minute and add the ground mixture. Saute well till the tomato paste starts to thicken and the raw smell disappears.
4.Add masoor dhal, salt and 3 cups of water. Close the lid and pressure cook up to 3 whistles.
5.Add coriander as garnish. Serve with rice/ roti.
