Saw this recipe on Discovery Channels Rhodes across India.. An amazing show! Here's the link. Will try it out after a couple of months, as I'm not supposed to have these kind of heavy dals while my baby is so small!
The recipe in short:
Take 1 cup washed black dal, add 4 cups water, some chopped onion, chopped ginger, garlic, some mustard oil and boil
Later, add some curd mixed with salt and red chilli powder
Add a tempering of only hing in ghee
Later, add some dried plums
Then add another tempering in ghee of onion, ginger and red chilli powder
Also, want to try this recipe of potatoes
Lets hope I come around to trying these soon!
