A Dal Fry – Simple Meals Meme

Posted by Annita on July 23, 2006

Shaheen of Malabar Spices has tagged me with a meme about simple meals .And this is my contribution to her simple meal list.

Chappathi & Dal Fry

This is the first dish i’ve ever cooked by myself.There is nothing particular about this dal dish,but i love it for its simplicity.If the dal is cooked first,it takes hardly 5 mins to prepare this dish.

Here’s the recipe..


Toor dal – 1 cup
Sliced onion – 1
Sliced Tomato -1/2
Dried red chillies crushed – 2 tsp
Ginger-Garlic paste – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
Curry leaves – a few
Salt – to taste
Oil – as needed


Pressure cook toor dal by adding water and salt.Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds into it.Allow it to splutter.Add onion,ginger-garlic paste,crushed red chillies,turmeric powder and curry leaves and saute till onions turn translucent.Add tomoto slices and saute for a while .Stir in cooked dal and necessary water and allow it to boil and turn the heat off.Serve with chappathis.
Thank you Shaheen for tagging me.And please consider yourself tagged,if you feel like doing it.
