Simple Dal - recipe for bachelors :D

A simple dal recipe from my husband for all bachelors and forced bachelors :D

you need ;

Toordal or Moongdal
Pressure cook dal with a pinch of turmeric and water till it is soft.

Seasoning : Oil, jeera and mustrad seeds, curry leaves,green chillies slit lengthwise, onions chopped length wise, tomatoes chopped roughly, coriander leaves chopped roughly.

Heat oil and pop mustard and add jeera. Whey jeera turns little brown add curry leaves, green chillies and chopped onions. Sautee them. Let onions turn transcluscent then add tomatoes. When tomatoes become mushy add salt, cooked dal with water and salt. Bring them to boil. Let it boil for next 2-3 mins. Switch off the stove and add coriander leaves and cover the pan with a plate. Let it settle down before you devor it with hot rice.

Result : He says it is awesome!!

it does look awesome Lakshmi, and simple dishes like this always taste yummy. My hubby does not know any such dishes...he can only make one type of very elaborate mixed vegetable curry for me. Otherwise he is totally into non veg cooking! I have to show him this!
