How to make Daal Phare

  1. Soak chana daal overnight
  2. In morning drain all water. Wash it thoroughly. Add a little salt, asafoetida and cumin powder and grind it to a smooth paste.
  3. In a separate bowl, take rice flour, add salt and a little oil and knead a soft dough using warm water
  4. Let it rest for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile take a large wok and add a jug of water. Add a tbsp oil to this water and let it come to boil.
  5. Make lemon size balls place it between two plastic sheets and roll out like a chapati
  6. Place a tbsp of daal paste on the one half of Puri and fold like a gujhiya. Press the ends firmly so that it sticks.
  7. Make similar gujhiya/dumplings with all the paste.
  8. Once the water begins to boil add these dumplings one by one and let it boil for about 5 mins.
  9. Remove one by one and check of done by inserting a knife or toothpick. If it comes out clean then it's done otherwise boil some more.
  10. Let it cool, then cut in approx 1 cm wide pieces
  11. Heat abt 3 tbsp oil and shallow fry the pieces till the stickiness is gone.
  12. In the same wok heat abt 3 tbsp mustard oil. Once it begins to smoke add onion paste and saute, after about 1 min add garlic ginger paste and saute till the raw smell is gone. Add turmeric powder coriander powder red chili powder and garam masala powder and saute till the oil begins to leave the sides. Add a little water if the masala has become too dry and add dumpling pieces and mix gently so that all the pieces are well coated with masala.
  13. Garnish with fresh green coriander leaves and serve hot with tea.

My Tip:

Urad daal can also be used in place of chana daal. Whole wheat flour can also be usrd instead if rice flour. It is easier to make. Urad daal tastes better in wheat flour while chana daal in rice flour.
