Dal jodhpuri is a rajasthani staple food which is served with Rice, Phulka or Roti. While cleaning my cookery book shelves, found this easy dal recipe which I had bookmarked some couple of years back from Good Food Magazine. This is also a healthy side dish prepared using two varieties of dal and also requires very less ingredients to prepare this delicious dal. Adding ghee in this recipe, enhances the taste of dal but for healthier version, substitute it with regular or olive oil.
1/2 Cup Green Moong dal / Pachapayir
1/4 Cup Chana dal
1/4 Tsp Turmeric powder
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp Ghee / Oil
1 Tsp Cumin seeds / Jeera
1/4 Tsp Hing powder
4 Dry Red chillies
2 Cups Water
Few Coriander leaves, finely chopped
Wash and soak both the dals for an hour.
Drain the water and add it to the pressure cooker along with turmeric powder, salt and 2 cups of water.
Pressure cook it for 5 whistles and switch off the flame.
Once the pressure gets released, open the lid and mash the cooked dal coarsely.
Heat ghee or oil in a small pan and add cumin seeds followed by hing powder and dry red chillies.
Once the cumin crackles, add it to the cooked dal and mix well.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.
