How to make Dal Peetha

  1. Cook chana dal and drain the water using a strainer. Mash when it cools and add all the spices.
  2. Mix flour, salt, water and knead a dough.
  3. Divide the dough in equal portions.
  4. Take a portion and press it. Make a small thick roti and put dal peethi generously on half portion of circle. Fold it like Tacos. Repeat the same process for the remaining dough.
  5. Boil water in a big pot and add the taco shaped peethas to boiling water. Boil for 10 minutes and transfer to a strainer.
  6. Heat oil in a kadhai & put all ingredients of tadka. When starts tempering add dal peethas. Cook on medium flame stirring occasionally for few minutes.
  7. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

My Tip:

Instead of boiling dal peetha we can cook them in steam for 15 minutes.
