Gujarati Tuvar Dal

I love simple dals often and its one of my comforting food, this time i wanted to change my usual way of making dals and went for this simple, mildly sweet tuvar dal which tastes awesome with rice topped with ghee or either with pulkas or rotis..This tuvar dal goes for easy preparation and jaggery added finally in this dal change the taste of this dal completely...I loved this dal and am gonna prepare them often as everyone at home loved this slightly sweet dal..Sending this dal to Nayna's Flavours of Gujarat & to Susan's MLLA#27..

Gujarati Dal

1cup Toor dal
1no Tomato (chopped)
1tsp Mustard seeds, cumin seeds
1tbsp Ginger (finely chopped)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Lemon juice
Jaggery (as per need)
Few curry leaves
1tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
Oil
Salt

Soak the toor dal in 3cups of water for an hour, add the turmeric powder,chopped ginger,chopped tomatoes, salt and 1tsp of oil to the soaked dals and cook them in pressure cooker or in vessel until they get well cooked, mash them completely..Heat enough oil, let splutters the mustard seeds, cumin seeds and asafoetida powder, add this tempered spices to the cooked dal and cook them in simmer, immediately add the jaggery, curry leaves, cook for few minutes..finally add the lemon juice,chopped coriander leaves and put off the stove..

Sreeja said... Reply To This Comment

Hi Priya,

I love to follow your recipes, just had a small question, when do you add the green chillies?

Susan said... Reply To This Comment

A touch of jaggery sounds just right. That little bit of sweet must change the whole flavor dynamic. I can smell all those spices and the curry leaves bubbling on the burner.

Thanks for another wonderful MLLA recipe, Priya!
