Sheetal Kamat

This Spicy daal was something I just experimented out when I was in pune. It turned out great. Actually mom dad loved it and then when I came here even ajoy liked it :) So thought of posting the recipe

Masala Daal
3 Cup Tur Daal
1 Onion
1 Tomato
6-7 Garlic cloves
1/4 Spoon Mustard
1/4 Spoon Jeera
1 Spoon Red Chilli Powder
1/4 Spoon Turmeric Powder
1/2 Spoon Jeera Powder
1/2 Spoon Corriander Powder
1/4 Spoon Garam Masala
Corriander Leaves for Garnishing
Butter cubes
Salt to taste

  • Cook tur daal with 1 cup water in the cooker.
  • Heat the oil and let the mustard and jeera splutter in it
  • Add finely chopped onions, garlic pieces and fry till onions turn translucent.
  • Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, jeera powder, corriander powder and garam masala and mix well.
  • Add tomato and cook till tomato is completely done.
  • Add in cooked tur daal, salt and mix well. Cook for couple of minutes with constant stirring
  • Add enough water for getting desired consistency to the daal and bring it to the boil.
  • Garnish with corriander leaves.
  • While serving serve with little butter cubes on top.

While cooking daal I dont mix too much of water, that way the cooked daal when added to masala completely soaks the taste and aroma.

    Thanks a lot.

    I havent used any other daal than tur daal. The spices are sopmething that are giving it its color. I think it is mainly garam masala. I use the garam masala that my mom makes (recipe here.
