Today, I was invited to a friend’s house for lunch. There were others too. Priysha was the one who was brave enough to invite all of us and better cook for all of us! The food on the menu included pepper chicken, keema, rajma, mixed vegetables, naan, rice, phulka, salad, and bread followed by plum cake and vanilla ice cream for dessert.
The food was yummy but I flipped for the dal! So, on special request, here’s featuring the recipe for the dhamakedar dal made by Priysha. Btw, we had a great time as well. But this sentiment seems like a footnote to the recipe!
For the tadka:
Onion – 1 small chopped into small square pieces
Garlic – 5/6 flakes chopped into small pieces
Green chillies – 1 chopped or slit
Tomatoes – 1 medium sized chopped
Ghee – 2 teaspoons
Jeera – 1 teaspoon
First boil the dal with salt and tumeric. Heat the ghee and add jeera and garlic in a wok till it turns light brown. Then add the chopped onions and fry till it turns brown too. Finally, add the chopped tomatoes and chillies. Fry it for some time and add it to the dal as tadka. Your yummy dal is ready!
