DAL TADKA - SOUTH INDIAN STYLE

Dal Tadka is the most simple sambar variety that can be made in very less time. Its nothing but the tempering/tadka added to the cooked dal. This is a easy and comfort menu during our busy days. This can be served as side dish for rice,jeera rice,plain pulao or roti. Its a staple and healthy food for the vegetarians. Basically this is a Punjabi recipe and we make this with toor dal. Lets look at the steps for making this dal tadka.

Preparation Time : 10 mints | Cooking Time : 20 mints | Serves : 2-3

 

Ingredients :

 

Toor dal / Thuvaram Paruppu – 1 cup

Tomato – 1 chopped

Small Onions / Shallots – 5 chopped roughly

Turmeric powder – a pinch

Salt – to taste

 

To Temper :

 

Oil / Ghee – 1 tbspn

Mustard seeds – 1 tspn

Cumin Seeds – 1 tspn

Hing – a pinch

Dry red chili – 1

Curry leaves – few

 

Method :

 

1. Wash the dal and soak for 30 mints. Pressure cook dal along with shallots, tomato and a pinch of turmeric powder with enough water for 4 whistles.Once pressure releases mash up the dal until mushy. Add the required salt and mix well.

 

2. Heat the oil/ghee, add the items listed under ‘to temper’. Allow it to crackle, switch off and add this tadka to the dal. Mix well.

 

Dal Tadka is ready..!!

My Notes :

 

1. Instead of toor dal you can make this with moong dal.

2, Instead of shallots you can use big onions.
