So this is what my mother calls "Pathani Daal" :P. I never liked maash ki daal before but i came across this recipe a few months back, knowing me u know i had to try it, so i did and lucky for me it turned out amazing. And i've been making it ever since. A delicious twist on your everyday daal recipe !

Oil : 1/2 cup

Method :
Clean and soak daal in water for 1 hour. Than boil and keep aside.

Heat oil in a wok and fry onions till golden brown. Take out and keep aside.

In the same oil add freshly crushed garlic, zeera and whole red chillies.

When fragrant add tomatoes, red chilli powder, haldi and salt. Cook on low flame.

When the oil is released and the tomatoes are cooked add juice of 1 lemon, green chillies and boiled daal.

Sprinkle fried onions, ginger and coriander(i used mint cuz i was running low on coriander). Cover and put on dam for 5-7 minutes.
