Yellow Dal or Dal Tadka is a commonly known Dal recipe in Indian Cusine. Dal is nothing but dried lentils. This is eaten with either Rice or any Indian Bread. Dals are a very good source of protein in a Vegetarian diet!

Serves:

2

Preparation Time:

15 mins

Cooking Time:

20 mins

Ingredients:

Toor Dal - ½ Cup
 
 Water - 3 Cups
 
 Garlic finely chopped - 1 tsp
 
 Ginger finely chopped - 1 tsp
 
 Green Chillies slit - 1 or 2
 
 Red Chilli Powder (Optional) - 1 tsp
 
 Asafoetida - ¼ tsp
 
 Turmeric - ¼ tsp
 
 Oil - 2 tbsp
 
 Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
 
 Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
 
 Few Curry Leaves
 
 Salt to taste
 
 Coriander Leaves (Cilantro) chopped for garnishing
 

Method:


• Soak Toor Dal in Water for 10-15min as this would make the Dal soft and decrease the cooking time.

• Pressure cook the Dal and wait for the pressure to be released completely and then open the Cooker.

• Heat Oil in a pan, add Mustard Seeds and allow it to splutter. Then add Cumin Seeds, Asafoetida, Turmeric Powder, Green Chillies and Ginger-Garlic. Then add Curry Leaves and stir for few seconds.

• To this add the cooked Dal. Add some Salt and mix well. Simmer and cook for few minutes.

• Garnish with Coriander Leaves and serve hot with Rice or Naan!

Testimonial:

"Dear Spices of India, Hi there, Just like to say thanks for the great service! I still find it a bit of a worry when using a website for the first time - especially when buying presents for others. But I placed my order at lunchtime yesterday, and the delivery van delivered before 9am this morning. If only some of the big brands could offer service that was so effective!! Many thanks,"
