Masala Masoor Dal - मसाला मसूर दाल (Spicy Split Red Lentils)

Hello friends,


A Very Happy Father's Day to all my fellow bloggers and readers and their dads.


Here is a very simple dal, which is our family favorite in my mom's family and of course now my husband and mine too :) 


Usually we cook this along with Aloo Posto (recipe will follow soon) and that is like "the" combo we like.


I usually cook it on stove top (never used cooker for it as masoor dal is very quickly cooked). But, this time I wanted to use microwave through and through just to take part in MEC - Delicious Dals event, which was originally started by Srivalli.


Masala Masoor Dal - मसाला मसूर दाल  (Spicy Split Red Lentils)


Ingredients
Masoor Dal (Split Red Lentils) - 1 cup
Water - 3 cups
Haldi (Turmeric Powder) - 1/2 tsp
Dhaniya (Coriander) Powder - 1 tsp
Jeera (Cumin) Powder - 1 tsp
Salt - as per taste
For Tempering
Jeera (Cumin Seeds) - 1 tsp
Rai (Mustard Seeds) - 1 tsp
Sabut Lal Mirch (Dry Red Chili) - 3-4, broken into pieces
Oil - 2 tsp
Preparation

  • Wash and drain dal.
  • Take dal in a microwave bowl with water, salt and haldi.
  • Cook it for about 15 min in microwave or till it is well cooked.
  • Now, take a small microave safe bowl and add everything under "For Tempering" and heat for 2 min.
  • Mix tempering in the cooked dal along with dhaniya and jeera powders and cook again in microwave for 5 min.

Serving
Serve it with roti or warm rice.
