ShareYou bet,Iv been getting into this Hyderabadi food mode over the last week.
I guess it was triggered off with the TV show-called foodie hosted by kunal vijaykar.In a particular episode,Diya mirza cooked up some amazing Hyderabadi Khatti dal and Fried Kheema.Shall try out the kheema a little later.

So herez yet another slurpy dal recipe which goes well with practically anything.
It works wonders when you defenitely need a break from the chickenz and the muttonz...
So here is the recipe

  • 2cups tuvar dal
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 4 whole garlic cloves
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 green chilli
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup tamarind paste
  • For tempering or the tadka:
  • 2 garlic cloves cut lengthwise
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • one string curry leaves
  • 2 dried red chillies
Wash the dal and place it in a pressure cooker, add 2 cups of water, garlic cloves, salt, red chilli powder and turmeric powder and pressure cook for about 15-20 min's.
After the pressure comes out,smash the dal with a wooden smasher or spoon.
Finally add the tamarind paste.
Throw in the green chilli and cook the dal for about 2 mins and set aside.
In a small pan, heat oil/ghee and add cumin and mustard seeds, as soon as they start spluttering, add the remaining ingredients and splash in onto the dal.
Serve with plain rice, or as a side dish with rotis(the consistancy can be made a little thicker if with rotis)
