I absolutely loved this daal. The texture is smooth & creamy, yet not as heavy and rich as the Daal Makhani, which though, is a personal favorite, but rarely made. I actually do quite a bit of mix & match with daals, & use either urad sabut or masoor sabut to make the daal black or brown.
This is my latest experiment & it really turned out good.
1-1/2 katori - black masoor daal
1/2 katori - chana daal
1 tsp - haldi
1 big onion
1 tsp - grated garlic
1 tsp - grated ginger
pinch of hing / asofetida
1 tsp - jeera
1 tsp - garam masala
either green chillies or red chilli powder
1 tsp - amchur
Wash & pressure cook the daals well, adding salt & haldi in the cooker itself.
In a fry pan, add the oil & when hot add the jeera
When it sputters, add the ginger & garlic & fry well
Add onions & on slow flame fry till about brown.
Add the asofetida / chilli.
Now add this tempering into the daal.
Add garam masala & amchur & mix well.
Cook for about 2 mins & garnish with corriander leaves.
Serve with rice, rotis or parathas.
There was a bit of confusion about the masoor sabut daal. I have therefore posted a pic of the same. Hope it helps
