Ingredients
For Dal
For Tampering (Tadka)
Instructions
  1. Wash and soak dal in water for 10 minutes. Soaking for 10 minutes is optional. This is to fasten the cooking time only.
  2. After 10 minutes Put the dal and water in a pressure cooker. Add salt and turmeric to it. Then chop the tomato and add to the cooker.
  3. Close the lid and pressure cook for 2 whistles. Turn off the gas and let the cooker cool and open the lid after that only.
  4. Once the lid opens, prepare the tadka and add it to the dal and close the lid immediately so that dal would absorb the flavor and aroma of the tadka.
  5. For tadks, take a tadka pan or small pan. Heat 2 tbsp ghee (or refined oil). Once ghee is hot add cumin seeds and let it splutter. Then add asafoetida powder, red & green chillies, garlic crushed and wait till garlic turns light brown. Immediately turn off the heat. Add coriander powder and red chilli powder and mix well with help of a spoon. The spices will get cooked in hot oil. Then immediately add the tadka to the dal and cover the lid.
  6. Open the lid after 2 minutes and add chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.
