Tadkewali Dal, Coriander Jeera Rice and Fruit Farsan Yogurt Salad. So lets get to the recipe.
Tur Dal 1 cup
Asafoetida/Hing 1/4 teaspoon
Saffron powder 1/2 teaspoon
Oil 1 teaspoon
Salt 1/2 teaspoon
For the Tadka
Garlic 4 flakes (lightly crushed)
Fresh Red Chilly 2 nos (cut in big bits)
Jeera/Cumin seeds 1/2 teaspoon
Rye 1/2 teaspoon
Ghee/Oil 2 tablespoons (I used pure ghee)
Curry Leaves 1 sprig
Maggi Magic Masala 1 Teaspoon
Coriander Leaves 1 Tablespoon (Finely chopped)
Wash the dal. Cook the dal in a pressure cooker with hinge, oil, salt and 2 cups of water take 4 whistles. When the cooker cools down open it. Your dal is cooked.
In a pan heat ghee add the rye, jeera and when it splutters add the garlic and saute for a minute. Add the curry leaves and red chilly saute again for a minute. Add coriander , dal and maggi magic masala. Add water to adjust the consistency you require and let it boil for 8 - 10 mins on slow flame. Garnish with coriander. Ready to serve.
Coriander Jeera Rice
Rice 2 cups ( I used Surti Kolam)
Shah Jeera 1 teaspoon
Jeera 1 teaspoon
Sugar 1 teaspoon
Salt 1 teaspoon or to your taste.
Water 3 cups.
Ghee /Oil 1.1/2 tablespoon (I used pure ghee)
Coriander 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
Bay leaf 1 no
Curds/Lime juice 1 teaspoon
You must be wondering, why curds or lime juice and sugar in the rice? Sugar gives a good taste to the jeera rice. Use it and see the difference.
I use curds, for the rice to be pearly white . The rice also comes out grainy when you add curds or lime juice ( This a tip to get grainy rice).
Small Green Grapes 15 nos
Small Strawberries 5 nos
Fried channa dal 1 tablespoons
Mixed Farsan 3 tablespoons
Fine Nylon Sev 1 tablespoons
Finely Chopped Onions 2 tablespoons
Rock Salt A pinch
Chat Masala 1/4 teaspoon
Chilly powder 1/4 teaspoon
Coriander finely chopped 1 tablespoon
Yogurt 1 cup beaten well
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix. The salad is ready to serve. This salad is really yummy. Try this unique salad. I am sure you will love it.
We were famished since it was past lunch time. We enjoyed our lunch.
