So I started my own tiffin service, where I was providing meals to Indians in various companies. That's when I had to come up with different dals for all days of the week.
One of my friends used to make this dal, and surprisingly I remembered the recipe, which definitely came to my rescue in making a different dal everyday!
A delicious, thick and smoky dal. Goes perfectly well with rice and ghee.
10 - 15 Minutes
30 - 35 Minutes
Ginger - Garlic Paste
1 large, diced
5 - 10 flowerettes (optional)
Wash and drain the dal. Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan and roast the dal till it becomes golden brown.
Heat the rest of the oil in a pressure cooker, add jeera, hing and bayleaf. Add the ginger - garlic paste and cook for 1 minute.
Add the diced carrots and peas, and all the other masala powders. Stir well.
Add the dal with the required amount of water, salt, and ghee.
Pressure cook for 3-4 whistles. Mash the dal well.
