Microwave Cauliflower Leaves Dal

I tried this simple dal with some tender cauliflower leaves, which turned out this dal super delicious and we enjoyed simply with rotis, both together works out wonder and even my H enjoyed this dal with hot rice with papads..This dal goes more than half an hour to get ready in microwave oven and this dal tastes incredibly delicious,with simple ingredients this dal was definitely healthy and tasty..U can try this dal definitely on stove top, but making in microwave oven doesnt need to sit and stir often as we do always when we were cooking over stove top..If u have some works or guests, making out dishes with microwave oven is best and better way to make out foods..

Cauliflower Leaves Dal

3/4cup Moongdal
1cup Cauliflower leaves (chopped finely)
1no Onion (chopped)
1no Tomato (crushed)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Sambar powder
1tsp Lemon juice
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
2nos Dry red chillies
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Few curry leaves
Oil
Salt

Soak the moongdal with 2cups of water for an hour, cook the moongdal with the soaked water in microwave oven in high for 15minutes with turmeric powder (stir in twice), mash nicely and keep aside..In an another microwave safe bowl, heat enough oil for 1minutes in high, add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, dry red chillies, asafoetida powder and curry leaves again for 3 minutes in high, now add the chopped onions, crushed tomatoes with salt for 5minutes in high (stir in twice), add the already chopped cauliflower leaves to the cooked veggies and cook for 5 minutes (stir in twice), finally add the cooked and mashed dal to the veggies with sambar powder,salt, slit opened green chillies , cook again for 5minutes..finally add the lemon juice , give a stir...
