Dal fry with aloo gobi mutter fry
       My favourite dish in North Indian cuisine! Whenever I get a chance to go to a North Indian restaurant,my order
will be Dal fry with steamed rice and kadai paneer…. My ever green combo! Today I just felt like making this at home
and here’s the recipe…Thanks to Sangeeta for the recipe!
Dal fry

Dal fry recipe

Indian Lunch
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins    Serves: 2

Ingredients


Toor dal (thuvaram paruppu) 1/2 cup
Tomato  1 no. 
Ginger  1/2 inch piece 
Turmeric  1/4 tsp 
Asafoetida  A pinch 
Green chillies  2 nos. 
Kasuri methi  A generous pinch 
Salt  As needed 

To temper

Ghee 1 tblsp
Jeera 2 tsp
Red chilli powder 3/4 tsp
Lemon Juice to squeeze on top before serving.

METHOD:

  1. Pressure cook dal(add just enough water) with a drop of ghee,ginger,asafoetida and turmeric for 5-6 whistles.( I soak the dal,cook in low flame after first whistle).
  2. Cooked dal
  3. After done,just mash it little without mashing too much.
  4. Heat a kadai with ghee and temper with half of the jeera (I added ginger at this stage).
  5. Tadka
  6.  add the chopped tomato,salt,fry till soft .
  7. tomatoes and chillies
  8. Add little water and let it boil for 2 minutes.
  9. softend tomatoes
  10. Add the cooked dal and mix well.
  11. Add dal
  12. Boil for two more minutes and add kasuri methi leaves(soak in hot water before adding)at this stage.
  13. Kasuri methi
  14. Let it simmer for 4-5 mins.
  15. final stage
  16. At last heat a tblsp of ghee in a kadai and add the remaining jeera , switch off the flame and then add the red chilli powder. Immediately add it to the dal on the top.(you can add little water immediately to prevent it burning).
  17. Enjoy with steamed basmati rice preferably with any kind of subzi as accompaniment. Dont forget to squeeze lemon as it gives a nice zing to dal!

NOTES:(Variations)

  • I have used toor dal,you can also substitute with moong dal(pasi paruppu) or combination of  moong,toor and channa dals.
  • You can replace ginger with garlic or with ginger garlic paste for variation.
  • You can temper coriander powder and garam masala powder along with red chilli powder.
  • I never make dal fry when I am out of lemons,I like the lemon squeeze the best in it ;)

  56. Hi, delurking, tried your mix veg kurma, and it turned out so good. I tried cauliflower and peas gravy yesterday, and it was a hit too. I am not a pro and whenever I try something from a foodblog most of the time it is a miss but not yours. Your pics r awesome, which make is ur camera. Ur pics r so drool worthy and makes me want to eat all the time which is not good for me..hehe. Keep up the good work.
