Steps

1
Done

Wash and soak toor dal (Yellow lentils) for 1 hour in lukeworm water. You can also soak overnight for faster cooking next day. If you are using Tamarind for the sour taste, soak it too at this step.

2
Done

Drain the soaked water and add fresh water. Pressure Cook toor dal for upto 4-5 whistles.

3
Done

Once the pressure cooker is cooled, blend the cooked dal with blender. Add water to adjust consistency of your choice. Usually Gujarati dal is not too thick and not too thin with a flowy consistency.

4
Done

Add dry ingredients - Salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, fenugreek seeds, and jaggery. Mix well the dal and let it simmer

5
Done

While the dal is simmering, prepare the tempering. Take oil in a tempering pan and let it heat. Add mustard seeds and wait till they start pooping. Add hing and curry leaves and immediately pour into the dal.

6
Done

If you are adding tamarind to your dal, pour the tamarind water to the dal at this stage. If you are adding lemon juice, wait till the dal gets its flavours.

7
Done

Let the dal simmer for about 25 minutes on slow gas.

8
Done

To add lemon juice, close the stove and add the juice and cover the dal with a lid. This would give great aroma to your dal and also health benefits. Enjoy your dal with steamed rice. I have prepared my dal with chapati, kurkuri bhindi (lady finger), sprouted salad, and steamed rice. Try this easy dal recipe and enjoy it on any day for a filling diet.
