Hello everyone! My today’s recipe is inspired by Aarthi’s blogpost and I thought I would give it a try. I have made few variations from what she made.I had made this about 2months back when I saw at her blog but just kept it pending to post.
Recipe source: Aarthi ..@ Yummy Tummy
We all make dal in different ways and at times plain dal becomes boring so lets do mummy ka magic here.
1cup tur dal , washed and soaked for 30mins
1tsp haldi (turmeric powder,
1tsp jeera (cumin seeds)
1tsp rai (mustard seeds)
1tsp urad dal
Pinch of hing (asaephotida)
1tsp red chilli powder
1tsp garam masala powder
1tsp coriander powder
1tsp amchur powder
Salt to taste.
Few curry leaves,
3 green chillies, cut in small pieces
2 dry red chillies broken in pieces
2cloves of garlic crushed
1 cup of mix vegetables of your choice.
Here I have used tomatoes, carrots, brinjal, okra, gwar, yam (sooran) and cauliflower cut and mix them all in one cup.
In pressure cooker boil dal in usual way. In a pan put oil, sauté onions, then put jeera, rai and green chillies, stir them and then add urad dal, curry leaves, dry red chillies,garlic and hing. Stir for a min then add all the vegetables. Stir and and put some water so they cook nicely.
Add salt and all spices and keep it aside after they have been cooked. Take dal out of pressure cooker and mash it a bit. Add water and add salt and turmeric powder. Be careful with salt here as we had added it in the vegetables. Mix the cooked vegetables in dal and stir it. Let it come to one or two boils.
Voila your dal with vegetables is ready.
Serve it hot and garnish with coriander leaves and a dash of butter. You can leave out butter but I just simple love the look of butter on top.
