Moong Dal

This is a variation of a recipe I got from a north-Indian friend. This can be had like a soup or goes well with rice or chappathis. With rice, it is best taken along with bitter-gourd and potato fry. The recipe for which I'll will post in the next post.

Moong dal -1 1/2 cup
Tomato - 2 medium
Ginger - 1'' piece
Green chillies - 2nos
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaf - 3/4 cup, chopped
Garlic - 8 cloves, chopped
Ghee - 1 tbs
Cooking oil - 1 tbs

Cook all the above ingredients (except for the garlic) in a pressure cooker, adding salt to taste for 5 minutes. Then heat a mixture of oil and ghee. Put some cumin seeds and when it splutters, add the chopped garlic to that. Sauté till it turns brown and add this to the cooked dal and mix well.
