Mixed Lentil Soup (Dal Tadka)

Dal is a staple dish in most Indian families and is generally eaten with rice or rotis (Indian flat-bread). Lentils are also a good source of protein.

Since I have many types of lentils and pulses at home, I liked to mixed them up and cook, it is nutritious and tasty!

1. Washed the mixed lentils and place it in a pressure cooker, add 2 cups of water, add in the onion, tomato, green chili, vegetables, tamarind paste, turmeric powder and salt. Pressure cook for 10 minutes, do not release the pressure immediately, let it release naturally.

2. Meanwhile, prepare the Tadka. In a small cookware or a microwavable bowl, add the fenugreek seeds, curry leaves, cumin seeds and mustard seed. Add 1-2 tbsps of cooking oil, heat it up on a stove if using cookware or microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds if using a bowl, add the chili powder, stir well and microwave for another 30-45. The tadka is ready.

3. Open the pressure cooker and stir in the Tadka, serve warm with bread or rice.

1. 把所有的豆子洗干净,加两大杯水,加入切块的洋葱,番茄,划开的辣椒,蔬菜,罗望子汁,黄姜粉,盐,高压10分钟后,不要放气,让高压锅自然出气就好了。

2. 个时候做红油(Tadka),在一口小锅里或者一个小瓷碗里放入葫芦巴,咖喱叶,孜然和芥末籽。加入1-2大匙素油,如果用小锅就炉子上加热,如果用瓷碗就在微波炉里加热1分钟30秒,然后拿出来,加入辣椒粉,再微波30-45秒。就成了红油。

3. 把红油淋到刚刚做好的豆子汤上,搅拌均匀,就好了。
