Gujarati Dal

By August 24, 2012

My dad's favorite.I don't know how this dal got introduced in to my family, but he is a big fan of it.Even though we are south Indian my dad,me and my brother have really craving towards North Indian food.(oops I told the truth). This dal taste very nice, it has a nice ginger and chilly flavor dominating the dal taste.Traditionally they add little jaggery at the end.I haven't added it in this dal, because we are more spicy people but you can add a tsp it wont harm the flavor.It will taste very good.

  • Prep Time : 10 minutes
  • Cook Time : 15 minutes
  • Yield : 4



1.Finally chop tomatoes,green chillies & ginger to small pieces.

2.In a blender grind ginger and chillies together and make a paste.

3.In a kadai/pan add little ghee and saute cinnamon,cloves and jeera.Then add ginger& chilly paste and saute till the raw smell is gone.

4.Now add the tomatoes let it cook until they are mushy.Add turmeric powder,chilly powder and garam masala.Let it cook for few mins.

5.Then add little salt and transfer the cooked dal to the pan and let it cook for 5 mins.Add 1/2 glass water.Close the lid.Traditionally Gujarati people add jaggery to this but its your personal preference.You can skip it if  you don't want to.
6.Now add the peanuts to the dal and let it cook for 5 more mins.Then once the sides start to bubble garnish with chopped coriander leaves and remove from fire.
