Gujarati Dal From Sukham Ayu~~ IC Challenge

Eventhough Srivalli choosed bit late our this month Indian Cooking Challenge i can definitely say it was an excellent choice, yep she went for an easy,delicious,comforting,interesting and truly a new dal which goes for dried dates and my favourite veggies yam and drumstick, i tried out twice this dal and they tastes truly tremendous along with rice and crispy dosas eventhough i loved them with rotis..This dal tastes absolutely quite different from the usual dal, this dal is choosed from Prathibha and Jigyasa's second book called Sukham Ayu, thanks a lot ladies without u guys i never would have tasted this delicious dal...Actually this dish called for dried dates,kokum,yam and drumsticks but i never get here those dried dates and kokam and finally prepared this delicious dal with pitted dates and used tamarind extract instead of kokum also deduced the quantity of jaggery used in this dal,else i followed exactly as the original recipe went for..

Gujarati Dal

3/4cup Toor dal
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
Oil
1tbsp Tamarind extract
1/4tsp Jaggery
4nos Pitted dates (chopped)
2nos Drumsticks(cut as pieces)
Few raw groundnuts
5nos Yam (cubed)
3nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Ginger (grated)
1tsp Coriander powder
1/2tsp Roasted cumin powder
1/4tsp Garam masala
Few coriander leaves
Salt

For Tempering:
1tsp Ghee
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Fenugreek seeds
1/4tsp Cumon seeds
2nos Dry red chillies
A pinch Asafoetida powder
Few curry leaves

Wash and cook the toor dal with enough water, turmeric powder and oil in pressure cooker for 3 whistles, once the pressure gets released, churn the dal well...In a heavy bottomed pan transfer the dal,add the cubed yam, drumstick pieces,pitted and chopped dates, groundnuts,slit opened green chillies, jaggery,tamarind extract,salt,coriander powder, cumin powder along with enough water and cook in medium flame until the veggies get well cooked..

Finally temper all the spices in ghee and add to the cooking dal,cook for few minutes..put off the stove, now add the garam masala and chopped coriander leaves..Enjoy with rice,rotis or with dosas...
