This is my pachi’s dish. I used to like it very much. I donno exactly what she puts. But this is how I do it and I simply love this.
Masoor 2 cups
Ginger-garlic paste 1 tea spn
Chilli powder 1 tea spn
Coriander leaves 3-4 strands
Kala masala or kitchen king masala or garam masala Â½ tea spn
Oil 1 tea spn
Soak masoor in water for around 1hr(this helps in easy cooking). Cook with potato pieces.
Heat oil and fry onions and ginger-garlic paste. When onions turn slightly brownish, add cooked masoor, chilli powder, chopped tomato and salt. Add sufficient water to bring it to curry consistency. Cover and cook till tomatoes are tender. Add kala masala(or kitchen king or garam masala). And cook for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with finely chopped coriander and serve hot with chapathis or rice.
