GARMAGARAM MASOOR DAL


INGREDIENTS

Red lentils/Masoor dal : 1/2 cup
Tomato : 1 piece (medium - finely chopped)
Turmeric powder : 1 tsp
Salt : 1/2 tsp (as per taste)
Sugar : 1/2 tsp
Green chilly : 2 pieces
Ginger : 2 pieces (peeled and grated)
Dry red chilly : 2 pieces
Panch foron : 2 tsp (combination of 5 spices – mustard, cumin,
Fenugreek / methi, fennel / saunf and kalonji/kala jeera

Fresh lemon : 1/2 piece
Coriander leaves : 1/4 cup


PREPARATION

• Wash the lentils/masoor dal till water runs clear
• Boil in water the first 7 ingredients (lentils, tomato, turmeric powder, salt, sugar, green chili and ginger) till soft and mushy
• You can either pressure cook it, which is obviously the fastest way or can cover and cook till done
• Set aside once completed
• Heat 2 tsp of ghee in a pan
• Add the red dry chili and the panch foron and wait for few seconds till it sizzle
• Immediately pour all of it over the lentils/masoor dal and stir it well for about 10 minutes so that it adds more flavour
• Squeeze fresh lemon and garnish with coriander leaves
• Serve it hot with white rice or rotis/chapatis

  6. Babli zee ab to masoor ki daal manhgi ho gye hai. Aina dekhta hoon to jeb kahti hai ye muh aur masoor ki daal. Bas turent apna chehra hata leta hoon. Jaspal bhatti zee ne to Rakhi me apni bahan ko dal aur sabji gift me dya tha. Khair ap to apne itna swadisht bana dya hai to khana hi padega. Baat hai ki bharat me kheti layak jameen me log apartment bana rahe hain to fasal kahan ugegi. Baharhal Apki dal ko salam. Zaroor khaunga. Bachchon ke lye bhi yeh sahetmand hai. Ab to gana hi padega Dal Roti khao, prabhu ke gun gao
