Mix dal preparation

Mix Dal Gravy
  • Soak the dhal overnight or for 6-8 hours in enough water.
  • Pressure cook the dhal and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds,slit green chilli followed by ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell goes off.
  • Add the chopped onions and fry till they turn translucent.Add chilli powder,coriander powder,chole masala powder and fry well.Stir continuously to avoid the masala getting burnt.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and fry till they turn mushy.
  • Now add the cooked dal,salt and required water.Cover with a lid and simmer in low flame for 10 mins.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve.
Note:
  • I have used the Mix dal readily available.You can also make with your own combination of dals(4-5 varieties) like channa,moong dal,rajma,Black eyed bean etc.
  • You can use Garam masala instead of chole masala.

  1. This of mixing the different types of dhal is seldom done over here. I have seen similar recipes on other foodies blogs. I tried but only with 3 types. The taste was good.

    Beautiful combo of the ready mix dhal which I don't think is available over here. Nice and simple dish and perfect for our rice.
