Punjabi Sukha Urad Dal

SUSMITA 150

"This is a very comforting dal for a cold day. Urad dal is stickier and heavier than other dals, so this is a thick-style dal. Serve with fresh phulkas with some chopped onion, tomato, and cucumber (kheera) salad on the side for crunch."

  1. Place the lentils into a large container and cover with several inches of cool water; let soak 4 hours to overnight. Drain and rinse.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed sauce pan over medium heat; cook the onion, green chile peppers, garlic, and ginger in the hot oil until the onions are golden brown, about 5 minutes. Stir the lentils into the onion mixture with 1 cup water; season with salt. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the lentils are tender, about 30 minutes. Stir the tomato, garam masala, and turmeric into the mixture. Cook until the lentils are cooked through, about 10 minutes more. Garnish with the cilantro to serve.

This dal tastes better if you add 2tbsps of curd and 1 tbsp of cream to it.serve it with plain paratha or simple pea pulav. chhaya[cstopre]

We enjoyed this. I also tried it with the 2 tbsp curd (yogurt in my case) and 1 tbsp cream suggested by the other reviewer and they added a nice creaminess to the lentils.

DELICIOUS. I used red lentils (all I had) and about 3 cups water. I doubled the spices and added 1 bullion cube. Will definitely be making again.

This was very good and flavorful, though I found 4 chilies were hot enough for us. So next time I will use 2 or 3 chilies instead. Thanks for your wonderful Indian dishes, Susmita.

Great, healthy recipe. The whole family liked it. I used 1/2 tsp. salt and might use a little bit more next time. I served it with brown basmati as I didn't have any of the breads on hand. UP...

All the grown ups at the table loved it. I ate it with some sour cream on the side, but it didn't need it. Very good comfort food indeed!
