4 tablespoons oil 2 medium onions finely chopped 1/2 tablespoon ginger garlic paste 2 medium tomatoes finely chopped 1/2 teaspoon kashmiri lal mirch powder 1/2 teaspoon haldi powder turmeric powder 1 teaspoon cumin seeds sabut zeera Salt to taste 1 1/2 cups mash ki dal urad daal 1 cup water (and more as needed) 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander leaves 1 inch ginger cut into thin strips 1 green chilli sliced
Start by soaking the mash ki dal in water for about 1-2 hours. Drain the excess water after the dal has been soaked.
In a medium sized pot, add the oil, and saute the onions until golden brown. Now add the tomatoes and fry for 1-2 minutes on high flame.
Add the spices, and cook this masala for about 10 minutes on high flame while stirring constantly.
Once the tomatoes have cooked through, and you can see the oil separating from the curry, add the mash ki dal (urad dal).
Add about 1 cup of water and cook on medium low flame. You will need to keep adding water little by little until the dal cooks through.
Garnish with chopped coriander, ginger and green chilli.
