Methi Dal curry


We rarely get fresh methi leaves here. When I get those little leaves, I make this simple & tasty dal curry which taste good with rice & chapathis too. Methi leaves can be used as additional ingredientens in non-veg dishes & veg dishes as well, which brings additional flavour to the dish. One of my comfort dish & pravin just like this preparation very much. Like to serve this with some yam fry.

Ingredients :
  1. Methi leaves - 1 cup
  2. Toor dal - 1/2 cup
  3. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  4. A pinch of hing
  5. Oil - 1 tbsp
  6. Fenugreek seeds - 1/2 tsp
  7. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  8. Urad dal - 1 tsp
  9. Curry leaves - 1 tbsp
  10. Onion - 1 no
  11. Tomatoes - 1 no
  12. Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
  13. Tamarind extract - 1 tbsp
  14. Salt to taste
  15. Ghee - 1/2 tsp

Method :

1. Combine the dal, 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder & a pinch of hing. Pressure cook them.

2. Heat oil in the kadai, add fenugreek seeds, mustard seeds, urad dal & curry leaves.

3. Once splutter, add finely chopped onion. Saute till tender.

4. Add finely chopped riped tomato, red chilly powder, salt & finely chopped methi leaves.

5. Finally, add the cooked dal & tamarind extract. Cook for 5 more mins on medium flame.

6. Before switching off the flame, add ghee & corriander leaves.

Serve with rice.
