Quick-to-cook tender red lentils absorb the deep garlic flavour in this dip, which is pepped up with a dose of lemon juice, a subtle infusion of cumin, and a blast of chilli powder. To enjoy some snappy fun, serve the pungent Garlicky Lentil Dip with bread sticks.
- Roast the garlic cloves on a slow open flame, with the help of a pair of tongs, till they are brown but not burnt. Peel the garlic cloves and keep aside.
- Combine the masoor, salt and 1½ cups of water in a pressure cooker, mix well and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Strain the masoor and refresh it with cold water. Keep aside.
- Combine all the ingredients including the masoor and garlic and blend in a mixer till smooth.
- Transfer the mixture into a deep bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Serve chilled with bread sticks.
