Simple Brown Lentil

This is a very simple and fast dhal. I used brown lentil and you don't need a pressure cooker for this. This gets tender on your regular stove top which to me makes it an easier alternative to regular toor dhal.

- 1 cup brown lentils (Soak for couple of hours)
- 1 carrot chopped
- 1 medium sized onion chopped
- 1 tomato chopped
- 1/2 tsp pepper powder
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- salt to taste

- 1 chili chopped
- 1 tsp jeera
- 1 tsp oil

1. In a broad vessel add the oil and Jeera. Once the jeera starts to splutter add the chilies and the onion. Add salt and chili powder.
2. Fry till the onion becomes soft. Now add the soaked lentils with 2 cups of water. Let it come to boil. Mix in the carrot and cook till the lentils becomes soft to your touch. Add water as needed.
3. Now sprinkle in some peper and mix them all well.

Serve hot with rice or roti

This easy dish is going to the wonderful event My Legume Love Affair hosted by Siri and started by Susan



That is indeed a great recipe dear.
