​Simple Dal yummyyatra ❤️this is bursting with flavour and oh-so satisfying
You’ll find the recipe below 👇🏼

1/2 cup of split yellow dal (mung dal)
1/2 cup of split red lentils (masoor dal)
1/4 cup of split pigeon peas (toor dal)
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp oil (any variety)
2 small cinnamon sticks
2 cardamom pods
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 serrano chili (or any variety), finely chopped
Salt, to taste
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
Ground cayenne, a pinch

1 Tbsp unsalted vegan butter
1 tsp cumin seeds
2-4 dried red chilies
Pinch of asafetida

Combine the lentils in a large saucepan, rinse them & set aside
Add ground turmeric & about 5 cups water to the lentils & bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat & simmer, partly covered, until the lentils are soft & tender, about 45 minutes. Alternatively, you can use a traditional pressure cooker or an electric one, like the Instant Pot, to cook them faster. Once cooked, beat the lentils with a whisk for a minute
The consistency should not be too thin or thick. If too thick, add more water. If too thin, continue to simmer a little longer.
Season lentils with salt
Meanwhile, heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add cinnamon & cardamom, & sauté for 30 seconds
Add garlic & sauté until light brown, ed by onions & cook for 5-7 minutes
Add the chili peppers & tomatoes & cook until the tomatoes begin to break down, about 4-5 minutes
Add the onion-tomato mixture to the lentils & stir well to combine. Cover & reduce heat to the lowest setting, while you prepare the tempering
Tempering (tadka) (just before serving)
Heat a small pan & melt vegan butter, add cumin seeds & dried chilies, fry for 20 seconds, turn off heat, add the asafetida, & pour this mixture over the lentils
Garnish with cilantro leaves & ground cayenne
Turn off heat & serve hot
