I made this dal for dinner tonight for myself. I used yellow moong dal to prepare this. As for the masalas, I used 2 tsps. of garam masala powder, 1 tsp. of turmeric powder, 1 tsp. of salt, 1/2 tsp. of red chilli powder and 1 1/2 tsps. of corriander powder. I made this dal in the pressure cooker. First, I heated oil in the cooker. Once hot, I tossed in the ginger, garlic and onion inside. I stir-fried this mixture on medium heat until it was lightly browned. After this I added in all the masala powders, mixed well and allowed it to stir-fry for 4 minutes. Then I added in 1 cup of chopped{in cubes} baby brinjals to the cooker, mixed it well and allowed it to cook for 5 minutes. Next, I folded in the drained lentils, lemon juice and about 4-5 cups of water. Then, I pressure cooked this dal for upto two whistles. I served this hot over white rice. Tastewise, this was ok. I will try different combinations next time on this to make it tastier and more flavourful. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
