Dali Recipe

Dali is a word used by the Konkani community for Dal. It is made with or without the addition of ginger. I have already posted a traditional Dalithoy, so posting Dali here which is flavoured with ginger and drizzled with lemon juice.

Ingredients :

  • 250gms toor dal/pigeon peas
  • 5 green chillies slit
  • 1 dry red chilly broken
  • 2 inch piece of ginger
  • 3 sprigs curry leaves
  • A pinch of Hing/asafoetida
  • Salt
  • 2 tbsps ghee
  • 1tbsp jeera/cumin
  • A pinch of haldi /turmeric
  • Juice of one lemon.
  • Coriander leaves

Method :
Pressure cook the pigeon peas to three whistles. Churn it and add the slit green chillies, ginger, hing and salt. Boil well. Heat 2 tbsps ghee. Add a tbsp of jeera and after it splutters add the broken red chilly and a pinch of hing powder to it. Add the curry leaves. Toss and drop into the boiling dal. Switch off and garnish with coriander leaves. Allow the flavours to infuse for a few minutes. Add lemon juice just before serving.
