Yellow Daal

This was dinner lastnight along with rice.I love the simple flavours of the lentils.Everyone (read every indian friend) I know has been brought up on Daal and Rice.Add a little dab of ghee(clarified butter), mix in with hot rice and it is the most satisfying meal of all.


Lentils 1 cup pressure cooked till 3 whistles ( i used a mix of many lentils.)
Cumin Seeds 1 tsp
Turmeric powder 1 tsp
Red chilli powder 1 tsp (use according to spice level)
Salt 1 tsp
Garlic 2 pods
Ginger 1 inch grated
Coriander leaves chopped

Pressure cook lentils in the cooker .

Heat oil in a big vessel.Add cumin seeds,turmeric powder,ginger and garlic.Fry for a min.

Add chilli powder,salt and add the cooked daal.

Add water and allow to cook on medium heat till it bubbles.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with rice.
