Yellow Moong Dal Tadka/Cherupayar Parippu Curry

Nothing will beat a thick dal served with hot steaming rice topped with ghee and pickles, wat a comforting food na..I usually make simple dals using toor dal or either with  toor dal and moongdal together, never tried out a simple dal just with split moongdal, i got this recipe from Nag's Edible Garden which sounds quite easy and interesting coz i never tried making dals  with ginger in tempering spices i usually go for crushed garlic cloves, the addition of ginger pulled me to try out this dal for our sterday lunch and we guys enjoyed having this easy breezy dal with rice for lunch and with dosas for our dinner..Thanks to Nags for sharing this delicious dal..Obviously this dal goes to Jayasri's Blogger's Marathon - Edible Garden..

Yellow lentils dal

1cup Split moongdal
1no Tomato(chopped)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
Salt

For Tempering:
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1/2tsp Grated ginger
2nos Red chillies
Few curry leaves
A pinch Asafoetida powder
Oil

Cook the dal with enough water with turmeric powder, greenchillies and chopped tomatoes for 3 whistles in pressure cooker,once the steam get released mash the dal little bit and keep aside..Meanwhile heat enough oil in a pan, add all the ingredients given for tempering and fry, once they get well fried add this tempered spices and salt to the cooked dal..

Enjoy with rice and spicy pickles or papads..
