How to make Dhaabe Wali Dal (Mixed Lentils cooked Dhaba (Indian roadside restaurant) style)

  1. Soak the 3 Lentils together overnight.Next morning drain,add 3 – 4 cups water and pressure cook them with 1 tsp salt till fork tender.Mash coarsely and keep aside.
  2. Heat Oil and add onions.Saute till translucent and add the ginger garlic and chilli pastes together.Mix well,reduce to low heat and cover till the spluttering stops and the pastes are fried.
  3. Mix well and add cumin and red chilli powders,the tomatoes and 1 tbsp Coriander Leaves.Mix well and cover again and cook for 3 – 4 minutes till tomatoes are a little soft.
  4. Add the coarsely mashed dals,butter and salt and mix well.Cover and let it cook again for 10 – 15 minutes on low heat opening it after 2 minutes and stirring well.Check for salt and take off heat.
  5. Garnish with the remaining coriander leaves.Crush kasoori methi between the palms and sprinkle on top.
  6. Put a blob of butter on top and serve hot with rice or roti!

My Tip:

In case you use canned Rajma(kidney beans),pressure cook only Chana Dal and Chilkewli Urad Dal and add Rajma while adding the cooked dals to the cooking onions and spices.The canned Rajma is already cooked and soft so no need of boiling it again!
