Dal Fry

Number of servings: 1

I usually make this with rotis. I make this with Toor Dal (arhar dal).  

List of ingredients:
1 Cup dal (arhar / toor).  
1 Teaspoon cumin  
2 Teaspoon butter/ghee  
1/2 inch piece ginger (mashed/julianeed)  
4 cloves garlic (mashed/julianned)  
1 onion (cut to small pieces)  
curry leaves (couple strands)  
1/2 Teaspoon turmeric  
1/2 Teaspoon chilli powder  

Cooking procedure
1. Boil the Dal in two cups water in the pressure cooker (6 minutes after hissing sound).

2. In a hot pan heat the butter/ghee. Add Jira, garlic and ginger. Let them cook. Add the Onions and roast for no more than 3 minutes. It should not be brown. They should remain white but slightly cooked and crunchy. Add all other seasonings.

3. Now add the cooked dal. Enough water to make it soupy. Now add salt. Bring to boil and let it froth for a minute. Cover and let it set for a few minutes and serve with Rotis/Rice.
