Chana, toovar and green moong dal is a protein-rich combination of dals prepared in an authentic indian style, with aromatic spices and powders. This is something you can cook every day, as it is neither rich nor fat-laden, but provides a good nutrient boost with dietary fibre and b-complex vitamins too.
- Combine the dals in a deep bowl and soak the dals for 30 minutes and drain well.
- Combine the dals, turmeric powder and 1½ cups of water in a pressure cooker, mix well and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai and add the cumin seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida, masala water and the cooked dal, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the coriander and cream, mix well and cook on a medium flame for another 1 to 2 minutes.
- Serve hot.
