Tidaali Dal

We start yet another edition of Blogging Marathon. For the first week of this edition, I have chosen to blog some traditional Sindhi dishes. 

I have browsed through some websites which had some authentic Sindhi dishes listed and I picked out three simple ones to make which I shall feature for the next three days.

The first one is of course, this Tidaali Dal or Tridaali Dal which, as the name signifies, is made out of three lentils. I have seen various ratios of these dals in multiple websites and I chose to go with a ratio I am comfortable with.

We found this to be a very aromatic dal and comforting at best!

Ingredients - 

Chana Dal 1/2 cup
Urad Dal 1/4 cup
Moong Dal 1/4 cup
Tomato, chopped 1/2 cup
Salt as needed
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Ginger, Garlic and Green Chillies as needed
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Curry leaves few, Asafoetida 1 pinches)
Optional Lime Juice as needed

Tidaali Dal

Method Of Preparation -

Wash the dals and pressure cook them along with ginger and green chillies until they are thoroughly cooked. Mash the mixture, add in salt and turmeric.

In a pan, add oil and the rest of the ingredients. After the mustard seeds crackle, add the grated garlic and saute until it turns golden brown. 

Add the mashed dal and let it simmer for a couple minutes and remove from fire.

Traditionally it is served with Sorghum Roti but we enjoyed with Rice. 

Also I squeezed in some lime juice to suit our palate.
