Horse Gram Dal.

Servings – 2.

Preparation Time – 15 minutes.

Hi and welcome my awesome lovely friends to my cosy ¬†food corner once again,love you all.As we all know that lentils and pulses are the great source of protein and energy today I want to share a recipe of a dal made from horse gram which is rich in many vitamins and minerals and removes stones from the stomach along with reducing cholesterol levels drastically.Today I will be making this horse gram dal with some selected veggies and hing ka tadka. You too can try it some day and if you do let me know how you liked it. I want to share this great recipe today with you folks.And thanks a lot to all my friends for liking my posts and commenting on them. I think your blogs too are very special.So the recipe is as follows:—

Ingredients:

  1. Horse Gram Dal – 250 gms.
  2. Brinjal(big) – 1.
  3. Radish – 1/2 of 1.
  4. Tomato – 1.
  5. Salt – According to need.
  6. Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp.
  7. Asafoetida – A pinch.

For the tadka

  1. Cumin- 1/2 tsp.
  2. Black mustard – 1/2 tsp.
  3. Dry red chilly – 2.
  4. Bay Leaf – 1.
  5. Vegetable oil – 1 tbsp.

For garnishing – Fresh chopped coriander.

STEPS.

Step 1 – Take the split horse gram in a vessel and dry roast it.Now take a pressure cooker and add the ingredients for the tadka into it.Now when it splutters add the chopped veggies, brinjal,radish and tomato and fry it for two minutes.You can add other veggies too of your choice,though here I have used the above mentioned ones because they give a special taste to the dal. Now wash the roasted dal and add it along with salt and turmeric powder and enough water.Also add the chopped coriander and pressure cook the dal for ten minutes or till done.I have added hing by mixing it with the water,ie, in raw form and not in tadka because this will give a special sort of taste to the dal. I generally use hing in most of my recipes except the non vegetarian items because it gives a complete and unique taste to my dishes and is very good for digestion too.jjj

Our horse gram dal is ready.Serve it with steamed rice,indian mashed potatoes, fried poppadums and rice fritters.I will share the recipe of rice fritters in my upcoming posts.

Friends do try the recipe at home.Share your comments and feedback.Have a great week everyone.Till then healthy cooking,happy living!!!
