Servings: 4


115 gm split red lentils
50 gm small split yellow lentils
2 1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon ginger pulp
1 teaspoon garlic pulp
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
2 fresh green chillies
1 chopped
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon oil or ghee
1 small onion sliced
1/4 teaspoon mixed mustard & onion seeds
4 dried red chillies
1 tomato, sliced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
2 fresh green chillies, seeded
1 and sliced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

Directions: How to Cook Chilli Dhal (Lentils)

1.Pick over the lentils for any stones before washing them several times.

2.Boil the lentils in the water with the ginger, garlic, turmeric and chopped green chillies for about 15-20 minutes until soft.

3. Mash the lentil mixture down. The consistency of the mashed lentils should be similar to that of a creamy chicken soup.

4. If the mixture looks too dry, just add some more water. Season with the salt.

5. To prepare the "topping", heat the oil and fry the onion with the mustard and onions seeds, dried chillies and sliced tomato for 2 minutes.

6. Pour this "topping" over the dhal and garnish with fresh coriander, green chillies and mint.
