How do I make this recipe?

Prep for Sookhi Urad Dal – Punjabi Style Dry Lentil –


First, rinse the dal well. Secondly, soak it in 2 cups water for about 30 minutes. When you are ready to cook, discard the water.

When you are ready to cook, chop the onions finely. Second puree the tomatoes. Third, grate the ginger. I used Cuisinart CTG-00-BG Boxed Grater to grate the ginger. Further, chop the green chilies finely.

COOK –

Firstly, on medium heat, add ghee in a deep bottom pressure cooker. Secondly, add in cumin seeds. Third, once they splutter add in onions, grated ginger and green chilies. Stir well. 

Further, once the onions turn golden, add in the spices (ground turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander, Kashmiri chili powder) and salt. Stir well. Furthermore in about 30 seconds add in the tomato puree and let it sauté for 2 minutes until the raw tomato odor is eliminated. Further add in the dal and stir well. Next add in 1 cup water. Stir. Close the pressure cooker lid.

Then increase the heat to high and let the dal cook until once whistle. It should take about 6 to 7 minutes. Once you hear the whistle, lower the heat and let it cook on low heat for another 5 to 6 minutes. Turn off the heat and the let the pressure release naturally. Open the lid top off with cilantro and serve with roti.
