Microwave Capsicum Dal

Needless to say that dals comes first in my comforting foods, i can have anything as dals even daily in my menu, love it that much..This time i prepared dal with green bellpeppers in microwave oven and this dal goes awesome with rice or with rotis, even it takes a bit long to get cook in microwave oven this dal was quite easy to get prepare and tastes super delicious..I prepared this dal with garam masala powder, freshly grounded pepper powder instead of sambar powder.Just enjoy this capsicum dal with hot steaming rice and papads, nothing will beat this delicious combo..Both together tastes absolutely divine and we loved it..

Capsicum dal

1/4cup Masoor dal
1/4cup Moong dal
1no Onion (chopped)
1no Tomato (crushed)
1cup Green capsicum (cubed)
1tsp Pepper powder
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1tsp Lemon juice
1tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
1/2tsp Mustard seeds+cumin seeds
2nos Dry red chillies
Salt
Oil

Wash and soak both dals together in 2cups of  water for an hour..Cook the dals with the soaked water in a large microwave safe bowl in microwave oven high for 15minutes until they get cooked (stir twice),mash well the cooked dal,add water if needed..In an another bowl, heat the oil with mustard seeds, cumin seeds and dry red chillies for 5minutes in microwave oven in high,now add the chopped onions, crushed tomatoes, cubed capsicums and cook again for 10minutes in high until the veggies get well cooked (stir in between)..now add the already cooked dal to the veggies along with pepper powder and garam masala powder..cook again in microwave oven for 3minutes in high..finally add the lemon juice,chopped coriander leaves and give a stir..

Serve hot with rice..
