Green Chili Dhal Recipe

Green Chili Dhal Recipes

Ingredients :

1/2 cup masoor dhal (split red lentils)

1/4 cup moong dhal (small split yellow lentils)

2.5 cups water

1 tsp ginger pulp

1 tsp garlic pulp

1/4 tsp turmeric

2 fresh green chilies, chopped

1.5 tsp salt

For the tarka:

2 tbsp oil

1 onion, sliced

1/4 tsp mixed mustard and onion seeds

4 dried red chilies

1 tomato, sliced

To garnish:

1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander

1-2 fresh green chilies, seeded and sliced

1 tbsp chopped fresh mint

Method :

Pick over the lentils for any stones before washing them. Boil the lentils in the water with the ginger, garlic, turmeric and chopped green chilies for about 15-20 minutes until soft. Mash the lentil mixture down. The consistency of the mashed lentils should be similar to that of a creamy chicken soup. If the mixture looks too dry, just add some more water. Season with the salt. To prepare the tarka, heat the oil and fry the onion with the mustard and onion seeds, dried red chilies and sliced tomato for 2 minutes. Pour the tarka over the dhal and garnish with fresh coriander, green chilies and mint.

Serves 4

This dhal (Tarka Dhal) is probably the most popular of lentil dishes and is found in most Indian and Pakistani restaurants. Dried red chilies are available in many different sizes. If the ones you have are large, or if you want a less spicy flavor, reduce the quantity specified to 1-2.
