Yellow Dal Fry

After a long break I am here again in my blog. Due to some other priorities I was not able to post any new recipes in my blog and for that I am really very sorry to all my followers. As a foodie I never stopped to cook good food but any how didn't manage to take photos and write recipes. Missing my blog and page very much so no more regrets because I am not going to stop cooking.

As a daily routine I need to cook dal at my home because without a dal my husband doesn't want to eat. So often I try to find out a new dal recipe. Last week one of my friends called us for dinner and she prepared some nice YELLOW DAL FRY. The taste of the dal was  really awesome so I didnt stop myself to prepare it at home to share with all of u.

1.Mixed Dal: half cup.
2.One large chopped onion.
3.One large chopped tomato.
4.One tea spoon ginger garlic paste.
5.Turmeric powder, Rec chili Powder, Cumin Powder, Coriander Powder (half tea spoon of each item).
6.Salt and sugar as per taste.
7.Sunflower oil for cooking.

For Tarka:
1.Few cumin seeds, 2 dry red chili, 1 bay leaf.
2.One tea spoon chopped garlic.
3.One tea spoon chopped ginger.
4.One tea spoon Kashmiri red chili powder.
5.One table spoon ghee.
6.chopped Coriander leaves for garnishing.

Wash and soak the dal for 30 mints.

Now in a pressure cooker add some oil, allow it to hot now add the chopped onion and chopped tomatoes and cook till the onions are transparent.

Now add the ginger and garlic paste and cook till the raw smell goes off. Now add some salt and sugar and mix well.

Now in bowl add all the spices powder and mixed with some water and add it to the cooker and cook it till the oil separate.

Now add the soaked dal (without the water) and cook for few mints.

Now add some water (around one cup) and cook till 4 to 5 whistle.

Your dal is ready now time for tarka.

In a small pan add half off the ghee and the Kashmiri red chili powder and fry for some time, now sprinkle it on top of the dal.

Now in the same pan add rest of the ghee and slowly add the cumin seeds, dry red chili, bay leaf, chopped ginger and garlic and fry for some time.

Now sprinkle it on top of the dal, and garnish with some chopped coriander leaves.

Your YELLOW DAL FRY is ready serve hot with plain rice or roti.
