  • Chana dal - 1/4 cup
  • Tomatoes chopped - 2 medium sized
  • Green chilli chopped - 1
  • Ginger grated - 1/2 inch

METHOD
  • In a pressure cooker add arhar dal and chana dal with water just 1-2 inches above dal and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • On high flame, as the pressure reaches maximum, lower the flame and allow dal to get cooked for around 10 minutes.
  • Turn off the flame and allow the pressure to get released. Keep it aside.
  • Next, heat oil in a pan.
  • Add heeng (asafoetida) and as it crackles, add jeera (cumin seeds) and ginger and chopped green chillies.
  • As they crackle and change colour, add chopped tomatoes to it.
  • Next, add turmeric.
  • Let them cook for a little while.
  • As the tomatoes start leaving oil, add rest of the salt, red chilli powder and kasoori methi.
 
 
  • Mix them well. When the mixture leaves oil, add 1/4 cup of water, mix well and bring them to a boil.
  • Now, add boiled dal to this tadka prepared.
  • Mix dal really well with the tomatoes mixture.
 
  • Add 1-2 cups of water. Bring them to a boil on high flame.
 
  • Lower the flame and cover with a lid.
  • Let it get cooked well. It will take around 15-20 minutes.
  • Check it in between and keep stirring well.
  • When it  gets cooked, turn off the flame.
  • You can add 1/2 a tablespoon desi ghee to dal at this point. This is optional but it adds extra flavour to the dal and mix them well.
  • Dal fry is ready to serve.
