Plain dal curry


Simple & quick dal curry taste good with rice & chapathis. Taste of tomatoes with green chillies bring the different flavour to the dal curry. I make this often especially when I make spicy non-veg dishes.

Ingredients :

  2. A pinch of hing
  3. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp

  11. Tamarind juice - 1 tbsp
  12. Coconut finely grated - 1 tsp
  13. Tomatoes - 2 nos
  14. Green chillies (as per ur spice)
  15. Garlic - 1 pod
  16. Red chillies - 2 nos
  17. Curry leaves - 1 tbsp
  18. Salt to taste
  19. Corriander leaves for garnishing

Method :

1. Pressure cook the toor dal with a pinch of hing & turmeric powder. Keep aside.

2. Heat oil & ghee in the pan, add methi seeds, mustard seeds, red chillies,curry leaves & urad dal.

3. Add finely chopped onions & saute for 5 mins on medium flame.

4. Meanwhile, cook the tomatoes with green chillies & garlic. Smash & add them to the onion.
