Simple Dhal recipe

Days are getting busier after my sis's marriage got fixed . I hardly find time to even think what to cook . Too much of baking in the last few days have resulted in me adding on like 4 kgs which is definitely not good . So I am so much resisting myself from baking , cooking rich foods and got back into diet phase again .

I am also planning to post from now on for next few months about the basic recipes to make it easier for my sister ;). She hardly knows to make dhal leave alone making sambhar . So this simple recipes period starts with this simple Dal which is anytime comfort food . It goes well with rice,idli, dosa and roti as well .



Ingredients :

  1. Split yellow moong dhal - 1/2 cup
  2. Small onion - 3 nos.
  3. Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp.
  4. Tomato - 1 no.
  5. Sambhar powder - 1 tsp.
  6. Green chilly - 2 nos.
  7. Garlic - 1 pod
Method :
  1. Pressure cook dhal upto 3 whistle along with sambhar powder and keep it aside.
  2. Heat a pan , add oil and once it is hot add cumin seeds , let it splutter , then add onions and saute for about 30 secs.
  3. Now add chopped garlic, tomato, green chilly,  and salt . Fry until tomato is completely cooked .
  4. Add the boiled dhal into the pan , adjust the water and simmer it until the dhal gets thickened. 

Notes :
  • Any dhal like split masoor dhal, toor dhal can be substituted for moong dhal.

very simple and yummy dish.
love the addition of small onion.

Reg ur doubt in my post,
idiyappam flour is made by washing the raw rice and drying it in shade and making flour out of it,Noraml rice flour is just grinding the rice into flour.
