Instructions
 

  • Soak both dals for 1 hr. You can skip this step. I do it to decrease the cooking time and also it is said that there are certain suppressed nutrients which gets activated by soaking dal.
  • In a pressure cooker boil both dals together in 4 cups water along with salt and tamarind. Cook until you get a long whistle on high flame and then 2 small whistles on medium flame. Once done let the pressure cooker cool and mix dal well .

  • In a tadka pan heat oil.[I always use mustard oil in this but if you want you can use desi ghee here]. Add asafoetida and immediately add cumin seeds and dried red chilies. Add chopped garlic and cook till garlic turns golden brown

  • Pour this tadka immediately into the cooked dal and cover. Open the lid after 5 mins and serve with rice or chapati.

Recipe Notes

  • Soaking will activate some supressed nutrients in dals so don’t skip this step.
  • You can use a mathani to mix dal well.
