A good dal and rice is all I need to make my meal . Good dals are often a challenge , especially as we tend to complicate the tarka with too many ingredients and go the pyaaz tomato route halfway to a subzi !This mixed dal I keep the tarka as simple as possible , and it tastes delicious.
100 Grams Moong Dal
100 Grams Urad .
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi.
1 Heaped Teaspoon Dhania Seeds - Lightly roast and crush coarsely.
8-10 Cloves Garlic Chopped.
Dried Red Chilies - Optional.
A Pinch of Hing - Optional , I love it.
Dhani Greens - Mainly stems.
1.Soak dals for an hour with haldi and salt - Pressure cook till done .
2.When ready to serve , heat ghee , add garlic , as garlic begins to brown tip in hing and dried chilies if using .Pour tarks over dal . Give one boil , take off heat and add half the dhania greens , stir and leave covered for 5-6 minutes. Dhania too will infuse dal beautifully. Garnish and serve !
