How to make DAL KA DULHA

  1. Soak dal for couple of hours. Cook it in a pressure cooker with 3 cups of water, tomato and a little turmeric powder.
  2. Knead the wheat flour adding the carom seeds, salt and enough water to make a soft dough.
  3. Take a small portion of the dough and roll out a chapati. Using a cutter or a lid cut out roundels.
  4. Take each roundel and using finger tips join the two edges and pinch lightly so that they don't open up while cooking.
  5. Now do the same with other two edges to make it like a small flower like dumpling. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  6. Heat water in a pan and boil the dumplings for about 5 minutes.
  7. Now dilute the boiled dal adding some water and tamarind juice. Check the salt and add if required.
  8. Tip in the dumplings into the boiling dal. Reduce the flame and simmer to cook them further until edible. Maintain the consistency of dal as you like it and add water accordingly.
  9. Heat oil in a small pan and add the tempering ingredients. Add this tempering to the boiling dal and save a spoonful for garnishing.
