Dal is one of the main sources of proteins for vegetarians, and hence a part of the staple diet of most Indians.
This wholesome, non-spicy recipe pools in the goodness of three varieties of dal—moong, masoor and urad.
While that makes it special for the health-watcher, the highlight for the food-lover is the fact that it is tempered in butter and not in ghee.
That imparts a special, virgin taste to the dish, making it truly irresistible. Feast on hot rice with mixed dal!
- Combine all the dals with 1½ cups of hot water in a microwave safe bowl, cover it with a lid and soak for 30 minutes.
- Add the salt and turmeric powder and mix well. Cover it with a microwave safe lid and microwave on high for 15 minutes. Keep aside.
- Put the butter in another microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds.
- Add the cumin seeds and microwave on high for 30 seconds.
- Add the tomatoes, onions, green chillies, ginger, chilli powder, coriander, cooked dals and little salt, mix well and microwave on high for 4 minutes, while stirring once after 2 minutes.
- Serve immediately.
