As the ‘trevti’ in the title suggests, this is a combination of three dals simmered with spices. The use of three dals imparts a special feel to this otherwise simple day-to-day dal, which goes very well with bajra rotla and lehsun ki chutney. As a variation, you can use urad dal instead of yellow moong dal.
- Wash the dals, add 1½ cups of water and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds, cloves, bayleaf, red chillies and asafoetida.
- When the seeds crackle, add the ginger-green chilli paste and sauté for a few seconds.
- Add the cooked dal, turmeric powder, lemon juice, salt and 1¼ cups of water and mix well.
- Bring to boil and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, while stirring once in between.
- Garnish with coriander and serve hot with bhakhri and garlic chutney.
