Tadka Dal

This is a very simple dal curry that goes well with chappatys and parathas. I came across the recipe @ vegrecipesofindia while I was searching for some curries for Aaloo paratha. This is super easy, tasty and very healthy and it will be a definite hit with kids.


Dal 1 cup
Onion 1 chopped
Tomato 1 chopped
Green chillies 1 or 2 chopped
Ginger 1 small piece chopped
Coriander leaves 1 tbso chopped
Astofeida a pinch
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Garam Masala Powder a pinch
Water 2 cups
Salt as required

Tadka tempering

2 tbsp Ghee
1tsp cumin
2 redchillies cut small
Garlic cloves 5 - 6


Cook dal along with onion, tomato , green chillies, ginger, astofeida and the powders except garam masala, adding 2 cups of water.
Do atleast 5 6 whistles
Smash the dal using a wooden spatula.
Now add garam masala powder, kasuri methi and chopped coriander leaves.
Cook for 2 mins covered with a lid

Tempering the tadka

Heat 2 tbsp Ghee and fry the cumins. Add red chillies followed by garlic. Fry till the garlic cloves are brown in colour.
