A very basic dal fry recipe which is one of the best combinations with steamed rice/jeera rice.

Ingredients -
toor dal (1/2 cup)
green chillies (2)
tomato(1 small)
onion (1 small)
turmeric(haldi) powder
hing (asafoetida)
mustard seeds
cumin seeds
fresh coriander leaves(1 tspn)

Method -
Wash the dal well and keep it soaked for 10-15 min in water.
Pressure cook the dal with salt and turmeric powder.
Put 1 tspn oil or ghee in a non-stick pan.
When the oil is hot add a pinch of hing and 1/2 tspn mustard seeds.
Once the mustard seeds splutter add the cumin seeds.
Now add the chopped green chillies(slit) and onion.
Then add the chopped tomato.
Let it cook for a min, then add the cooked dal.
Add salt if required and cook the dal to the desired consistency by adding water(if required).Garnish with coriander leaves.
