Basic Dhal

- 1/2 cup yellow moong dhal
- 1/2 cup red lentils/masoor dhal
- 2 green chillies slit into half
- 1 inch grated ginger
- 1 tspn cumin powder
- pinch of turmeric
- salt to taste

Seasoning ingredients:
- 1 tsp jeera
- 1 tsp oil

1. Boil the dhals until it becomes tender. I used a slow cooker and cooked it in high for two hours.
2. In a pan pour oil and add the jeera. Once it starts browning add the chillies and ginger. After a minute add the tomatoes and fry till the tomato becomes tender. Add salt, turmeric powder and jeera powder. Fry it till the raw smell evaporates.
3. Add the dhal to the pan Cook it for 3-4 minutes. I just added my fried seasoning to the slow cooker and let it boil for another 20 minutes.

Garnish with cilantro and serve it hot with rice or roti.
