Quick Garlic Daal

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for Quick Garlic Daal. It is a really delicious vegetarian dish, and when served with hot chappatis and achar (Pakistani pickle), it cannot be beaten! We often make this in our home after Eid - it's a refreshing change after all the meat and chicken feasts!

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Cumin Seeds
2. Ground Turmeric
3. Red Chilli Powder
4. Ground Coriander
5. Water
6. Salt
7. Red Lentils (Masoor Daal)
8. Split Lentils (Chana Daal)
9. Vegetable Oil
10. Garlic
11. Fresh Coriander

Bismillah, let's begin!

Take one cup masoor daal (red lentils) and 1/4 cup chana daal (split lentils).
Wash them, clean them in a few washes of water. Place in pan covered with water. 

Bring to the boil, and then simmer for about 15 minutes or until the daal is soft.

Heat 1/2 cup vegetable oil in a pan.

Take two teaspoons cumin seeds.

Add them to the hot oil.

Fry for a minute.

Next, take a whole garlic bulb. Peel and thinly slice.

Add the garlic to the pan.

Fry for two minutes.

Next, take:
Two teaspoons red chilli powder
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
Three teaspoons ground coriander

Add the spices to the pan.

Stir fry for another minute.

Now, pour the cooked daal with all its water into the pan.

Stir well.

Bring to the boil, and then simmer for a few minutes.

Add salt, to taste.

Throw in a handful of chopped fresh coriander.

Stir well, and the daal is ready!

Serve immediately with hot rice or chappatis!
