Masala Dal Fry is a curry prepared using Split Red Gram, Onions and spices. I learnt this recipe from my aunt who was an amazing cook.
Time Required: 25 Minutes
1 Cup Tur/Tuvar Dal/Split Red Gram
Juice of 1 Lemon
½ tsp Mustard Seeds
½ tsp Jeera/Cumin Seeds
½ tsp Turmeric Powder
Salt to taste
For the Masala paste:
4 Pods Garlic
2 Green Chilies
2tbsp Coriander Leaves
½“ Ginger piece
Grind the ingredients for the masala to a paste. Cook Dal in the cooker and keep it aside. Heat Oil in a Kadai and add Mustard Seeds and when they splutter add Jeera and Turmeric Powder. Add the Masala paste.
Stir-fry until the moisture evaporates.
Now add the cooked Dal and mix well.
Add Salt and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove to a serving bowl and add Lemon juice, mix well.
Serve hot Masala Dal Fry with Phulka or Rice.
