Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Wash and soak the dals for 30 minutes.
  2. Drain the soaked lentils and place in a pressure cooker (I use this) with 2 cups of water, turmeric and 2 drops of oil. Pressure cook for 2 whistles, switch off flame and allow cooker to cool. It’s best not to overcook the dal so that there is some texture to the lentils and it doesn’t turn completely mushy. We do want it to be properly cooked though.
  3. In a heavy bottomed pan, heat the ghee. Add cumin seeds. Once it splutters, add asafoetida.
  4. Add the finely chopped ginger, garlic and onion. Saute for 4-6 minutes on medium flame until onions are golden-brown.
  5. Add pureed tomatoes and simmer until most of the water dries out.
  6. Add salt, red chilli powder and simmer for another 2 minutes.
  7. Add cooked dal to this and bring to a simmer, adding the garam masala powder at the final stage.
  8. Remove into a serving bowl and garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
  9. Serve with steamed rice or parathas, along with wedges of lemon.
