RED LENTIL WITH GARLIC TADKA
Hi guys. I am back welcoming you to my site again. In our everyday cooking plan for the lunch menu people in India usually make rice, dal, and curries,sautéed or stir-fried vegetables as a staple platter. I too personally make the same and amongst dals and veggies, I make varieties of both of them. In dals, I make rajma ki dal, methi dal, dal tadka, lemony dal, hing waali dal and many others. Today I decided to make another variation of dal, red lentils with a garlicky or ‘lehsuni tadka’. It will be a welcome change from your regular experience of eating dals and I am sure will be liked by one and all. So friends let’s start with its making—-
Ingredients:-For the dal:-
- Red Lentil-250 gms.
- Turmeric Powder- 1 tsp.
- Asafoetida-A pinch.
- Water- 2 1/2 cups.
- Salt-According to taste.
For the garlic tadka:–
- Black Mustard -1 tsp.
- Carom Seeds-1 tsp.
- Dry Red Chillies-2.
- Chopped Garlic-2 tsp.
- Oil(mustard or vegetable oil)- 1tbsp.
Wash the dal and pressure cook it with salt, turmeric powder, asafoetida till done.
Take a pan. Add the black mustard, carom seeds, dry red chilies, chopped garlic and let it splutter without adding oil on a medium flame. When half done, add in the oil and fry it till golden browned.
Mix the above-made tadka in the dal.
Our Red Lentil With Garlic Tadka is done.
