Dal Fry

Dal Fry is a famous and the best accompaniment dish in restaurants that is ordered, as it goes best with almost anything like roti, naan, rice dishes and khichdi as well. Today I am sharing home style dal fry that is easy and simple to make.

Tuvar Dal 1 cup
Onion 1 small finely chopped
Tomato 1 medium finely chopped
Green Chili 1 slit
Ginger 1" piece
Garlic 2 to 3 pods
Salt as per taste
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder 1 tbsp
Coriander Powder 1 tsp
Oil 1 tbsp
Ghee 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds 1 tsp
Asafoetida 1 pinch
Curry Leaves few
Dry Red Chili 1
Freshly Chopped Coriander Leaves few

Wash and drain tuvar dal and pressure Cook adding enough/needed water, garlic pods smashed, ginger slits, turmeric powder and salt. Pressure cook for around 5 whistles or as per the quality of the dal.

Once the pressure releases, roughly mash the dal{as we want the thicker bite of dals consistency for dal fry}.

Let's start preparing the dal fry...
In a pan, heat oil and ghee. As it heats, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida, curry leaves and dry red chili and saute.

Now add onion and saute until onions are soft and translucent.

Add tomatoes and saute until mushy.

Now add the cooked dal.

Add red chili powder, coriander powder and check for salt. Add salt if required. Mix everything well and cook for around 5 to 7 minutes.

Our Dal fry is ready.

Garnish with freshly Chopped Coriander Leaves.

Serve as per liked with roti/chapati/naan or jeera rice.
