Tomato ginger dal

This is my favorite dal recipe and I can eat this everyday. As a child I used to beg my mom to make the "tomato dal". It goes really well with hot paranthas.


2 cups cooked toor dal
one tomato, diced
ginger, one inch, chopped into pieces
cilantro chopped 1/3 cup
curry leaves 4 to 5
turmeric 1/2 tsp
cumin seeds
mustard seeds
lemon juice
salt to taste
ghee 1 tblsp

Heat ghee in pot. Add curry leaves, asofetida, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and turmeric. When seeds crackle, add ginger pieces. Fry for a minute. Add tomatoes. Fry for a little while and then add salt. This will allow tomatoes to lose water and become mushy. Add dal. Mix well. Add water and mix till dal is nice and thick. Add lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Add chopped cilantro and serve.
