Dali Saar (Dal)

Dali saar is one of the most favorite dal in all Konkani homes. I like it for its simplicity. It is easy to cook and full of flavor. Its a recipe which even a new bee in cooking can do comfortably. Dali Saar with rice and any dry sabji or pickle is very satisfying meal with minimal effort!!

Like other dals, basic ingredient in this dish is toor dal. It is little watery hence the name 'Saar'.So if you are big fan of rasam, you will enjoy this dish equally.

1/2 cup toor dal
1 big tomato chopped
4 green chillies cut lengthwise
5-6 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp chopped coriander
6-7 curry leaves
1 pinch of hing
1 tea spoon jeera powder
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp jeera
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp ghee

  1. Pressure cook toor dal with 1 1/2 cups of water,chopped tomato,green chillies,turmeric and hing.
  2. Once cooked, beat dal properly.
  3. Add another 1/2 cup water to get little watery consistency.
  4. Heat this adding jeera powder,salt and chopped coriander leaves.
  5. Let this simmer for 5-6 minutes. Bring it to boil. 
  6. For making tadka, heat ghee in small kadhai. Add mustard seeds. When mustard seeds splutter, add jeera, curry leaves, garlic.
  7. When garlic turns brown, add this tempering to dal. 
Serve hot with rice.

Preparation time: 20 mins
