Toor Dal Fry

Today is kind of a  lazy day. Weather is not so good, it’s about to rain. I thought I will welcome the rain with some Dal, hot rasam and pa pad.

Here goes the recipe for Dal:

1 cup toor Dal

1/2 cup green onions chopped (optional)

7-8 green chillies

3-4 sprigs of coriander leaves chopped

2 cloves of garlic crushed

2 curry leaves

1/2 tsp mustard seeds

1/2 tsp jeera

1/4 tsp turmeric

2 red chillies

Salt according to your taste.

  1. Pressure cook the dal. Pour correct amount of water. I usually estimate so i can’t give the correct amount. Heat 4-5 tbsp of oil.
  2. Add jeera, mustard seeds and red chilli.
  3. After they splutter, add green chillies, green onions and curry leaves.
  4. Fry for a minute and add garlic, switch off the stove.
  5. Add turmeric and mix everything with the Dal. Add the salt.
  6. If your dal has water, don’t add any water. If it doesn’t have any water add 1/3 cup water and boil the the Dal for 7 mts on medium heat.
  7. Garnish with coriander leaves and enjoy……….
