Time: 15 minutes to prepare dal curry Servings: 5 Things needed: Onions- 1 Garlic -7 pieces Tomatoes- 2 Dal- half a cup Green chillies-3 Salt-As needed Oil
Mustard seeds Curry Leaves Sambar powder-1 tsp
Step 1: Take a steel bowl. Add sliced onions, tomatoes, washed dal grains, garlic pieces(no need to mash them) and chillies into it. Step 2: Keep this steel bowl in a cooker. If your cooker is a small one then no need to use a separate steel bowl to cook, you could put the ingredients into the cooker directly. If you want to cook rice also side by side in the same cooker only then a steel bowl is required to segregate the rice and dal curry bowls.
Step3: After four whistles turn off the cooker.
Step4: In a cooking pan put some oil, mustard seeds, curry leaves, little mashed garlic and the contents of the steel bowl that was kept in the cooker.
Step5: Add plain water to this bowl to make it less thick but make sure its not watery.
Step6: Once it starts boiling , add sambar powder and salt.
Step7: Let it boil for some more time and then turn off the flame.
