Last weekend i got three bunches for mint leaves from my farmer's market, after using two of those bunches for kurmas and pulao, the remaining bunch was sitting in my fridge to be used at any time...I was planning to make some chutney with those mint leaves but finally i finished them as dal while making dal with toor dal cooked along with onions and tomatoes...Very aromatic dal and this dal tastes prefect along with hot steaming rice topped with ghee or as an delicious side dish for rotis...I prepared this dal bit thick and its really very easy to prepare, whoever loves mint leaves much will definitely love this dal...Obviously this dal goes to Suma's Delicious Dals From India & to MLLA-22th helping guest hosted by Ruchikacooks, event by Susan..
1/2cup Toor dal (cooked)
1no Tomato(big& chopped)
1/2cup Mint leaves (washed & chopped)
1/2tsp Sambar powder
2nos Green chillies(slit opened)
1tsp Lemon juice
1/2tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
3nos Dry red chillies
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Heat enough oil and fry the mustard seeds, urad dal, dry red chillies, asafoetida powder...now add the chopped onions and slit opened green chillies, saute until the onions turns transculent, add the chopped tomatoes, cook until they turns mushy...Now add the chopped mint leaves and saute until the leaves shrinks a bit..Add the cooked toor dal with enough water along with salt and sambar powder...cook until the veggies get cooked, finally add the lemon juice and put off the stove..
Enjoy this aromatic dal with rice or rotis..
