How to make Punjabi Dhaba Dal (Spicy tangy flavorful whole masoor dal)

  1. Wash and soak the dal for atleast 10 minutes. Cook the dal in pressure cooker with salt, 1/2 tsp turmeric and tomato in it. Give it 2 whistles and then lower the heat. Cook for another 10 min and then turn off the gas.
  2. Soak the tamarind in 1 tbsp of lukewarm water for 5 minutes. Remove the tamarind seed and skin after 5 minutes. This tamarind water will be used later.
  3. In a deep pan, add the oil or ghee. When the oil is heated, add hing and the cumin seeds.

  5. In the meantime, take out the blanched tomato from the cooker into a bowl. Remove the outer skin and puree it with a spoon or fork.
  6. When the onions become translucent, add the tomato puree. Add the tamarind water. Stir and mix.
  7. Add 1/2 tsp turmeric, Kashmiri mirch, cayenne, madras curry powder, kasuri methi and salt as per taste into the pan. Saute the mixture for 5-7 minutes till you see the oil getting separate.
  8. Now add the cooked dal. Bring it to a boil. Lower the heat and let it simmer for another 10 minutes.
