An unusual combination of ingredients viz. Suva (dill) and Masoor. Abundantly rich in protein, calcium, iron, folic acid and zinc, Masoor makes a good combination with sweet tasting Suva to make a delicacy in itself. Garlic adds its own unique flavour and perks up the taste of the dal.
- Clean, wash and soak the dal for about 15 minutes. Drain and keep aside.
- Add the turmeric powder, salt and 1 cup of water and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Remove, whisk well and keep aside.
- Heat a non-stick pan on a medium flame and when hot, add the cumin seeds and dry roast for 30 seconds.
- Add the curry leaves, garlic, green chillies, onions and dry roast till the onions turn light brown in colour.
- Add the cooked dal, dill leaves and ½ cup of water and bring to boil.
- Lower the flame and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Serve hot.
