Refreshing Multigrain Dal


I learnt this recipe from one of my aunt, it is little different as the end she added raw onions and tomatoes which surprised me very much, it provided a unique texture and color to the dal and did not feel it is uncooked. It was very yummy and preparation was easy too. I am sure you would love to try it

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup channa dal
  • 1/4 cup green peas
  • 1/4 cup black eye beans
  • 1 cup onions ( 1/2 sliced and 1/2 nicely chopped )
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 2 green chillies chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro (coriander)
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 big potato boiled and roughly mashed
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tbsp garlic ginger paste
  • salt to taste
Cooking Procedure

Soak the grains (channa, black eyed beans, green peas) for one hour and pressure cook them with enough water with 1/2 tsp turmeric powder and 1/4 tsp salt till they become soft. ( For my pressure cooker it took 3 whistles plus five minutes on low flame)

Boil the potato and remove the skin mash it roughly and keep aside

Heat oil in a big pan add 1/2 cup sliced onions and fry till it becomes golden brown, now add the boiled grains and potato and mix nicely. Now add one cup water, garlic ginger paste, red chilli powder and salt. Mix it nicely and it let cook for 10 minutes.

Check the consistency in between if it is hard add little water to make it flowy like dal. Once you feel all the ingredients have blended nicely then add garam masala mix it once then add chopped onions, tomato, green chillies and chopped cilantro. Mix and switch off the flame. Cover the pan for 5 minutes and serve hot with roti or rice.
