DIRECTIONS

  • Put soaked lentils and soyabeans in a cooker with 4 cups of water.
  • Add salt, turmeric powder and onions along.
  • Pressure cook for 18-20 minutes on medium heat.
  • If you do not use a pressure cooker then you have to wait till the ingredients turn absolutely tender and may have to increase the quantity of water in the pot.
  • This will take a longer time.
  • Meanwhile take a pan and melt the butter.
  • Add garlic and brown the same.
  • Add all the remaining spices and turn the heat off.
  • Open the cooker and mash dal gently.
  • Transfer the same to the pan.
  • Add some water if the consistency is too thick.
  • Take care that it does not turn too watery.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
  • Serve warm with a dash of fresh cream.
  • This goes well with steamed white rice and Indian breads.
