How to make Spicy Kashmiri Black Bean Dal

  1. Soak the black beans overnight or for 5-6 hours. If you forget to soak overnight, warm some water in a container. Add little salt and soak the black beans for a minimum of 2 hours.
  2. Cook the beans in a pressure cooker with salt and water. Give it 2 whistles and cook it for another 10 minutes on low flame. Turn off the heat after 10 minutes and let the steam cool down.
  3. Add oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds and hing. When the seeds stop to crackle, add the onions along with ginger, garlic and green chilly. Saute for 5-7 minutes till the onion becomes brown and translucent.
  4. Now add the chopped tomatoes. Add turmeric, Kashmiri mirch powder, cayenne and garam masala.
  5. Cover it with a lid and let it cook for 15 minutes till the tomatoes become soft and mushy. You may add a little water to avoid the masala from sticking.
  6. Now add the cooked black beans. Bring it to a boil and then lower the heat and let the dal simmer for 10 minutes.
  7. Turn off the heat. Transfer it into a serving bowl. Garnish it with coriander. Serve it hot with rice.

My Tip:

If you forget to soak overnight, warm some water in a container. Add little salt and soak the black beans for a minimum of 2 hours. After 2 hours, the black beans can be cooked in a pressure cooker. Give it 2 whistles and then cook it for another 10 minutes on lower flame.
