Ginger-garlic paste 1 tbsp
Red chili powder 1/2 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder 1 tsp
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
Oil 2tbsp
Salt as per taste
Method:-
Soak chana dal 1 hour before cooking.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker and saute cumin seeds, green chillies, and onions till brown in colour. Add in spices and ginger-garlic paste, and fry for a few seconds.
Add in the chopped tomatoes and salt, and cook for a few minutes to combine well. Add lentils, and enough water to cover them. Pressure cook for 5-7 minutes till lentils are soft and done. Stir in more water if you want a much thinner consistency, and let it come to a boil.
