Gujarathi Dhal for ICC

For this month's ICC Srivalli selected authentic Gujarathi dhal from the cook book Sukham Ayu. This dhal is very easy to prepare and went well with rice. The recipe called for drumstick. As we dont' get drumstick now, I just substituted it with potato. It tastes just like the south Indian sambar minus the sambar powder. 


Toor Dhal-1/2cup
Turmeric powder-1/2tsp
Thick Tamarind extract-1/4cup
Yam- 4-5 1"cubes
Potato-1 cut into the size of yam pieces
Ground nuts-1tbs
Green Chilly-2
Ginger-1small piece chopped finely
Coriander powder-2tbs
Cumin Powder-1tbs
Garam Masala-1/4tsp
Powdered Rock Salt-to taste

Cow's Ghee-2tsp
Mustard Seeds-1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds-1/4tsp
Cumin seeds-1/2tsp
Red chilly-2
Curry Leaves-5-6

Coriander leaves for Garnish

1. Pressure cook dhal with 2cups of water and turmeric powder till mushy.
2. Add the vegetables, coriander powder, cumin powder, rock salt, groundnuts,tamarind extract, slit green chillies, ginger and jaggery with 1 cup of water.
3. Let it cook on low flame until the vegetables are done.
4. Heat ghee and add the tempering ingredients. When splutters add it to the cooked dhal.
5. Garnish with coriandr leaves and garam masal sprinkled on top.
6. Relish with rice or rotis.
