Instant Daal Tadka

This is delicious yet very simple recipe. It goes well with roti and rice both. I will say this is my version of Daal-Tadka.

  • 1 cup toor daal
  • 1 sp mustard seeds
  • 1 sp cumin seeds
  • pinch of turmeric
  • 1 sp red chili powder
  • 1 tbs tomato paste
  • 3-4 garlic pods
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 green chilies

Pressure cook toor daal till its very well cooked. To help daal cook faster add few drops of oil and pinch of turmeric in it while cooking.

In a pan add oil, once hot add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Lower the heat. As it sputters add chopped garlic, chopped green chilies and tomato paste. Add red chili powder, turmeric. Put daal and add some water to make it thinner. Add salt and let it simmer for a while till it reaches desired consistency.

This is my all time, any time favorite!!
