How to make Ma ki dal ka madra (Black gram lentils in yoghurt)

  1. Soak the sabut urad dal overnight, then pressure cook it by adding 1 tsp salt and black cardamom with 1/2 cup water or boil till it is just split.Strain and keep aside. (save residual water to use later, if ,gravy thickens)
  2. In a pan or wok, take the ghee. Add the zeera, as it splitters, add the bay leaves, green cardamoms,cloves, cinnamon.
  3. Add turmeric and chilli powder. After 30 seconds, add the boiled dal and fry a little till it is coated well with ghee.
  4. Add the beaten curd and keep stirring to avoid curdling (this is the most important step in making Madra).
  5. As it boils, add salt and dry fruits. Keep on a low heat till the gravy thickens.
  6. Serve it with paranthas (traditionally served with ghyoor, recipe given. In the picture I have served it with lacy pancakes.)
My Tip: Black cardamom is the secret to bring out the flavour of this dish. If the gravy thickens, after some time, it has the tendency, add the saved water or boiled water.
