Mukasash Cooks Peeli Moong Dal Fry

One of the simplest, easiest dishes you can make in a jiffy – Peeli Moong Dal Fry!  This is a recipe wifey makes now and then, so didn’t really have to look up any reference on the internet.  

The pictures should be pretty self-explanatory, will anyway add recipe too.

Absolutely yummy Dal fry !   Simple and easy to make. 
Here’s the recipe in  colloquial lingo:
Veggies needed : 2 Onions, 2 Tomatoes, 1 green chilli
The whole process is done in a pressure cooker.
Start with heating 2 Tbsp of oil, adding 1 tsp of Jeera (cumin seeds), wait till they splutter.  Add chopped green chilli, saute for 2 mins.
Add cut onion and fry till brown.
Add tomatoes and fry till they’re mashed.
Add 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp Chilli powder, 1/2 tsp coriander powder, 1 tsp roasted cumin powder, and 1/2 tsp Garam Masala, Salt to taste.
Add a splash of water so the spices do not burn.  Fry for 2-3 mins on Med Flame.
Add soaked and drained 1 1/4 Cup Yellow Moong Dal and mix well.
Add 3 cups of water, mix well.  Close the Pressure cooker and cook for 2 whistles, switch off cooker.
Allow pressure to release.
Now switch on cooker again
Add 3 more cups of water / dilute to desired consistency.  It tends to thicken quite quickly.
Add a slice of butter, allow it to melt.  Add chopped coriander for garnish!
That’s it!  Makes an awesome accompaniment for Rotis, Jeera Rice.
