This one’s a great meal by itself. Nutritious and tasty, it can be cooked in a jiffy if you have everything cleaned, chopped and ready in hand. Toovar and chana dal are cooked with a melange of vegetables: pumpkin, brinjal and potatoes seasoned with spices, tamarind, jiggery and more for a sweet-sour tasty meal.
- For the dal and vegetable mixture, wash the dals, vegetables and colocasia leaves and add 3 cups of water.
- Cook in a pressure cooker. Cool slightly and blend in a liquidiser. Keep aside.
- For the tamarind-jaggery water, wash the tamarind, add the jaggery and ¼ cup of water and boil until the tamarind is soft.
- Pass this mixture through a sieve and keep aside.
- To proceed, heat the oil in a large pan and fry the mustard seeds, cloves, cinnamon, red chillies and chilli powder for a few seconds.
- When the mustard seeds crackle, add the asafoetida and then the dal and vegetable mixture.
- Add the tamarind-jaggery water, turmeric powder, salt and ¾ cup of water. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes.
- Serve hot, garnished with the chopped coriander.
