SPLIT BENGAL GRAM WITH BRINJAL, POTATO, AND PEAS
Hello and welcome friends to my cozy cooking corner. Today I’ll be trying my hand on making a combo dish of partly dal and partly veggies. So it’s a mixed dal with veggies. The dish is healthier, tastier and is a great way to save time and efforts in preparing other dishes like stir-fries or fritters to complement your meal. So let’s start to make it—-
- Split Bengal Gram or Chana Dal-250 gms
- Brinjal-1/2 of 1
- Peas-1/2 cup
- Green Chillies-2
- Ginger-Garlic Paste-1 tsp each
- Salt -According to taste
- Turmeric Powder-1 tsp
- Red Chilly Powder-1 tsp
- Cumin Powder-1 tsp
- Coriander Powder-1 tsp
- Garam Masala-1 tsp
- Tomato Puree-2 tbsp
- Dry Mango Powder-1/2 tsp
For the tempering:–
- Cumin-1 tsp
- Vegetable Oil-1 tbsp
For the garnish:–
- Freshly chopped coriander and Fresh Cream-As required
Wash and boil the dal. Chop the onions, green chilies and the veggies, brinjal, potato and coriander leaves.
Take a kadhai and add some vegetable oil and cumin and let it splutter. Add the onions, green chilies, and ginger-garlic paste and fry for three minutes. Next add the masalas i.e, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder,coriander-cumin powder and fry again for two minutes. Then add in the tomato puree and fry for a minute before adding the veggies. Saute the veggies in the masala and add in the boiled dal. Lastly, add the garam masala. Garnish with freshly chopped coriander and fresh cream.
