Dal Meat

Dal meat can be made with many dals . I prefer using Channa Dal and like to retain a bite in it. Also I don't like a gravy but like a ' luga lipta ' masala . In my moms home they use Dhuli Urad Dal and keep a gravy - so I guess everything goes ! What you need to keep in mind is that your meat masala will also flavor the dal , so the quantities will change accordingly.
500 Grams Mutton - Marinate in 1 Tablespoon each Ginger and Garlic paste for an hour , and pressure cook two whistles without water .Open when cool , meat will be 75  % cooked.
1 Cup Channa Dal - Soak for 2-3 hours , boil uncovered till done but firm, strain -lightly saute for 3-4 minutes in ghee / mustard oil adding salt .
2 Large Onions - Chopped.
4 Tomatoes Minced/pureed
1 Tablespoon Garlic Paste.
1 Tablespoon Ginger Paste.
Whole Chilies
1-2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
Ghee / Mustard Oil
Make Masala Powder :
2 Teaspoons Jeera.
1 Teaspoon Black Peppercorns.
1 Tablespoon Dhania Seeds.
1 1/2 Teaspoons Sauf.

Heat oil , tip in onions , when brown ad tomatoes , ginger ,garlic and whole chilies.Cook covered till oil seperates , now add the masala powder and salt.Tip in meat and give it a good bhuno till done , adding slashes of water.When meat is cooked , add channa dal , gently cook with meat for 7-8 minutes covered on low heat to marry flavors , add water according to desired gravy , and adjust flavors after adding 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice.
