Moong Dal Tadka

This post has been in my drafts for so long, that today I decided that its high time I post it or else it would never happen. Not in great writing spirits because of various reasons. One major reason being an apartment shifting due next weekend.. Packing, disposing off the waste, paying all dues and above all leaving behind couple of good friends here is very painful. However, one thing I am sure of carrying over to the new place is a lot of anxiety and apprehension about the new locality and the people I would meet!!


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup - Moong Dal(whole or split), washed and soaked for 1 hour
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp - Asafoetida powder (adjust according to your taste)
  • 1 tbsp - Oil
  • 1/2 tsp - Cumin seeds
  • 1/2 - Onion, sliced
  • 2-3 nos - Green Chillies, chopped
  • 1 - Tomato, chopped
  • Some coriander leaves for garnish
Method:
  • Pressure cook the washed and soaked dal till soft with required water, salt and asafoetida
  • Heat a kadhai with 1 tbsp of oil and splutter the cumin seeds. Saute in the onions till golden brown. Add the green chillies and tomatoes and saute till soft.
  • Add the turmeric powder and saute for 2 minutes
  • Now add the cooked dal into the kadhai and bring it to boil and simmer till you get the right consistency.
  • Garnish with some butter(optional) and coriander leaves.
  • Serve hot with rotis
