Mixed Dal is spicy and tasty, it makes a good accompaniment with roti, nan, steamed rice or even jeera rice.

Dal is one of the essentials of daily cooking. I prefer using a combination of pulses as nutrients from various sources are derived. Being vegetarians, I try to provide a balanced diet by making dal regularly.

A well prepared dal is not only tasty but goes well with both rice and flat bread. We often pair this with jeera rice too.

Dal Methi is the one I commonly make at home. I have an e-book on Amazon titled, 30 Tasty Dal Recipes

Mixed Dal

Ingredients:

Measurement used : 1 cup =100 ml

  • 1 cup turdal
  • 1 cup moong dal
  • 1/2 cup masoor dal
  • 4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon oil +ghee
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 green chilli
  • 1/ tsp turmeric powder
  • a pinch of asafoetida
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 3 tomato
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • salt

Method:

  1. In a bowl, add all the dal in specific quantities. Wash and soak it in water for half an hour.
  2. Cut the onion and tomato finely.
  3. Cook the dal with a little turmeric powder and four cups of water for three whistles. Let the pressure release by itself.
  4. In a pan, add oil and ghee. Add cumin, as it splutters thrown in green chilly and garlic. Sprinkle asafoetida and a little turmeric powder to it. Put onion to it and saute it for sometime.
  5. Once it is golden in colour, put tomato pieces and salt to it. Let cook for five minutes. Sprinkle some water  to it, lest it may burn.
  6. With the back of the ladle, mash the cooked dal. Put it to the pan.
  7. Allow to cook for sometime. Adjust the consistency of the dal.
  8. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.

Take a tip :

  • Depending on the quantity that you need, decrease the size of the cup. Otherwise, use a tablespoon of dal instead of a cup. The quantity I have given is sufficient for six people.
  • Adjust the measurement of dal to your preference, I prefer using this measurement.
  • Only oil may be used, but ghee gives a good taste.
  • Reduce the quantity of chilli powder if needed.

    I like the combination of different dals used in this recipe, Jayashree. I usually cook moong masoor dal combo for dal tadka & toor dal cooked in simple way but combining all 3 I am sure this dal must be so flavorful.
