Dal Fry

Dal Fry

How many  days do we have no vegetables in the house? Or how many times do we feel lazy to cut vegetables for cooking. This is the best recipe  which we can think of during those days.. :) Very healthy, tasty and easy. Enjoy.

Masoor Dal - 1 cup
Tomato - 1 small (Finely chopped)
Onion - 1 no. (Finely chopped)
Ginger garlic paste - 2 tspn
Fresh coriander - 1 tspn (Finely chopped)
Kasoori methi - 2 tspn
Butter/oil - 2 tspn
Jeera - 1 tspn
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tspn
Chilli powder - 1/4 tspn
Water - enough to cook dal.
Salt to  taste

1) Boil masoor dal till done and keep aside. (This dal cooks really fast, so there is no need to pressure cook)
2) In a pan, add oil/butter and once hot, add jeera,  and onion and saute for a minute.
3) Now add ginger garlic paste and saute for another minute and add tomato.
4) Once tomato is cooked well, add turmeric powder and chilli powder and kasoori methi, and saute for another minute
5) Now add salt and add the cooked dal and mix well.
6) Keep the pan closed and let the dal boil for about 2 minutes.
7) Now add garam masala, and coriander leaves and mix well.
8) Garnish with some  butter and serve   hot with rice / chapati
