Methi – Tomato Dal

December 4, 2007 at 2:56 am 3 comments

I believe toor dal is an everyday ingredient in many Indian Kitchens like mine too. One classic combo made ou of almost any greens. Today it was methi’s turn in my kitchen as fresh methi leaves were stocked up in my fridge. I am sending this as my entry for JFI – Toor Dal hosted by Linda . JFI is the event originated by Indira of Mahanandi.
To make methi – tomato dal,pressure cook toor dal and methi leaves together or separate:
In a pan,do the popu or tadka and then add 1 medium sized tomato finely chopped,salt and turmeric and let cook till tomato is tender and cooked.Now,add cooked dal and methi leaves,stir and let cook. Add 1/4 tsp of red chilly powder,stir and let cook for few more Min’s until dal thickens. Take off from heat and serve hot with rice.
