Dali Thoy (Dal)

Dali thoy is one of the most famous and simple konkani dish. Dali thoy and rice is like a definition of comfort food. First time I ate it when my husband prepared it. Since then this has been my favorite dal.

1/2 cup toor dal
3-4 green chillies cut lengthwise
2 red chillies
7-8 curry leaves
1 tsp jeera/cumin powder
1/2 tsp turmeric/haldi
pinch of hing/asafoetida
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
3-4 tsp ghee

  1. Pressure cook toor dal with green chillies, turmeric.
  2. Mash cooked dal. Dal should not be very watery.
  3. Heat dal by adding cumin powder and salt. Let this simmer for few minutes.
  4. In separate kadhai prepare seasoning. For that heat ghee and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add cumin seeds, turmeric, curry leaves and red chillies.
  5. Switch off the heat of dal. Add seasoning to it.
Serve hot with rice.
Preparation time: 20 minutes.
