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.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 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
  • Water - depending on dal consistency

DIRECTIONS:
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. Simmer the flame for about 15 minutes. Check water levels regularly so as to not burn the dal. Taste to see if there is a little sour kick to the dal, if not add some lemon juice.    Step 4  Dal is now ready to be served.
