    Girl from India's Note:

    This is my trademark Dal recipe I am posting for a friend!!! The ingredients are really approximatations as I am a very instinctive cook. I add/ subtract/ vary quantities of ingredients all the time for the dal to turn out just a little different each time.

      When the dal is cooked heat a tblsp of oil in a kadai/ vessel Add the asafetida and the mustard, cumin and curry leaves in quick succession.

    8. 8
      When heated through add the lime juice.
    9. 9
      (One tsp at a time Taste and add some more if you feel like it you can go beyond 2 tsp if your taste buds give you the go ahead) Garnish with coriander leaves (we really add a lot of these but I have only put and serve hot over rice).

      This is now Dal As We Like It Too. Made as written and enjoyed by everyone in a group of eight. I got all the ingredients ready before starting which made production a breeze. Girl from Indian, thanks so very much for sharing this recipe.

      Absolutely delicious. On par with my South Indian's mum's dal. The only modification I made was to reduce the amount of dal by 1/2 but keep the spices at the same quantity. I also put some chopped red pepper in a seperate bowl within the pressure cooker and added the cooked red pepper just before adding the cooked dal to the pan. I did miss out the green chillies as I wanted my kids to eat it but next time I will experiment by adding one green chilli.
