Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Toor dal, belonging to the lentil/ legume family is a favorite Indian recipe. Usually eaten with hot rice or even roti, this delicious staple meal has a number of health benefits. High in folic acid, protein and also dietary fiber, they represent a low-fat and low-cholesterol alternative, especially for vegetarians. Not only do they help improving bowel movement, but also reduce the risk of chronic diseases.


  • Toor dal - 4 tsp Or - 1 ½ tbsp
  • Red Ripe Tomatoes - 1 small 
  • Olive Oil - 1tsp
  • Ginger Root -1 Tsp 
  • Salt - to taste
  • Red chili - as per taste
  • Cumin Powder - ½ tsp
  • Coriander Powder - ½ tsp 
  • Lemon juice - squeeze lime as per taste
  • Black Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp

Step 1 Wash and cook the lentils in a pressure cooker for about 10 minutes. While the Lentils are cooking prepare the tomatoes, ginger, and chilies.  Step 2 Once lentils are cooked, remove and puree them when they are a little couler. Set aside. In a  pot add oil and heat. Add mustard seeds to the oil and wait for them to pop. Once mustard seeds have popped add the tomatoes, saute for about 1 minute.  Step 3 Add the pureed lentils and water.  Now add the chilies and ginger and the rest of the spices.
