Posted in : BREAKFAST RECIPES, HULI / CURRY / VEGETABLE CURRY / GOJJU / TANGY CURRY / DAL / TOVVE / VEGETABLE KOOTU / SAGU on by : Divya Suresh Tags:

A simple, healthy dal prepared using split yellow lentil or moong dal or hesaru bele (in kannada). It goes very well with steaming rice, roti/Phulka, any kind of biryani, Pulao etc. Specially Kashmiri Pulao tastes best with this particular dal. Today I’m going to share absolutely my method of making yellow dal, just cook dal, prepare a simple tempering and add it to the dal, check for the salt… that’s it ! so simple!

 

Ingredients :

  • Split yellow lentil/moong dal – 1/2 cup
  • water to cook the lentil
  • salt to taste
  • Tomato – 1 big (I have not added) or tamarind/Lemon juice – 1 tsp
  • Coriander leaves – 1 tbsp (to sprinkle on the dal)

For tempering :

  • Ghee – 1 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Green chilli – 1 chopped (optional)
  • Ginger – 1 tsp
  • Red chilli powder – 1/2 to 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Hing – 1/8 tsp

 

PROCEDURE :

  • Rinse and cook yellow lentil until soft, (add chopped tomato if you are using) and add in salt and tamarind/lemon juice

  

  • Prepare tempering using all the ingredients under the heading ‘for tempering’

  

  • Pour the tempering over the dal and mix everything well

  • Allow it to boil for 1 more minute
  • Remove from the fire and serve
