Chilka Urad and Chana dal

Print Friendly and PDF
Simple dal is a part of most comfortable meal in our daily life.I like experimenting dals in combination like toor with moong,moong with masoor,chana dal with whole moong dal,chana dal with chilka urad etc..This dal tastes definitely different in its texture also from regular dal and suites best as a side dish with roti's or pulao's.

Ingredients:


4 tbsp Chana dal
2 tbsp Chilka Urad dal(split black urad dal)
1 big tomato,finely chopped
1 medium onion,finely chopped
1/2" ginger ,finely grated
4-5 garlic pods,finely grated
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp jeera powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala
1 green chilli, slit
1/2 tsp jeera
a pinch of haldi/turmeric
a pinch of hing
1 tbsp chopped coriander
salt to taste
oil and ghee for tempering

Method:
  • Wash and soak chana and urad dal mixed for 10 mins.Add a pinch of turmeric to it.pressure cook dal for 2 whistles and reduce the flame and let it cook for 5-7 mins.
  • Heat oil and fry ginger and garlic and then add finely chopped onion and fry until it is brown in color.Add tomatoes and cook until it is mushy and add this to the dal mixture and let it come to a boil.Add salt and mix.
  • Add ghee in a tadka pan crackle jeera,slit green chilli,coriander powder,jeera powder,garam masala powder and hing.
  • Add the tadka to the dal and give a mix properly and add chopped coriander to it.
Serve it hot with hot rice/jeera rice/pulao or roti/paratha.
