To start with
Welcome to my very first post on this blog. Let me start with a very simple recipe - Daal.
I am sure you all like Toor Daal. How do you make it? Boil it in a cooker in a separator vessel and then do the tadkaa? Well, let me tell you a simpler recipe.
1 cup Toor Daal
1 Green Chilly
1 teasp Jeera
1 teasp Salt
1 teasp Dhania Powder
Half teasp turmeric powder
Quarter teasp Red Chilly Powder
2 tbsp Oil of your choice
3 cups water
Chopped Coriander for garnishing
Method: Wash Daal and keep aside. Put Cooker on the stove on high flame and put oil. Once the oil is heated, turn the flame low and put chopped green chilly and jeera in it followed by chopped tomato. Stir for half a minute mashing tomato pieces lightly. Then put daal followed by Salt, Dhania Powder, Turmeric Powder and Red Chilly Powder. Mix it well. Pour 3 cups water and close the cooker. Make sure the weight (or seeti) is in place. Let the flame be on sim. Turn off the stove after three whistles. Open it when the pressure inside calms down by itself. Garnish with chopped Coriander. Eat it with steamed rice and pickle.
