Goan Dal/Toi

For the past three days, the weather is getting too worst here, either its rainy or else its too chilled. No matter how the weather is, we are enjoying even this chilled weather with some comforting foods. As you know, am running my second week of blogging marathon and today is the final day.As i chosed Goan cuisine as this week's theme, i really want to finish my last day of this second week's blogging marathon with a simple,flavourful and super comforting dal from Goa.

This dal can be prepared with many other veggies and i picked this recipe from Dassana's Veg Recipes of India. This dal gets ready very much easily with a wonderful coconut flavour. If you are bored of our usual dal dishes,do give a try this fingerlicking comforting food. A simple coconut paste with onions,cumins and garlic cloves gives a fantabulous flavour to this dal. We loved it very much and am sure you guys will love it too.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#26.

1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1no Tomato
Salt
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Cumin seeds

1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Coconut oil
Coriander leaves (chopped)

To grind: 
2tbsp Coconut
2nos Shallots
2nos Garlic cloves

Pressure cook the dal with enough water,salt and turmeric powder for 3hisses

  10. This is different from the Mangalore Dalitoi. Actually toi means water and it is a dal with a lot of water. A regular in most Konkani homes. This one is different and definitely worth trying.
