Mixed Dhal with Coconut Milk

Today I made some paratha and to go with it I made a mixed dhal subji. This is similar to Dal Makhani but with a slight variation. I used coconut milk instead of cream or milk. The dhal was rich in flavor and had a slight sweet taste because of the coconut milk. I used sprouted moth beans, black uradh dhal and green moong dhal but you can susbtitute with any other beans.I have given approximate measurement of the spices and powder. Please adjust according to the quantity and your taste.


- 1.5 cup mixed dhal (I used sprouted moth beans, black uradh dhal and green moong dhal)
- 1 Onion chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 Jalapeno chillie
- 4 tomato chopped
- 1 tbsp Panch poran
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1 tsp coriander powder
- 1.5 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp red chili powder
- 2 tbsp coconut milk
- 1 tsp oil
- Salt to taste


1. Pressure cook the dhals untilt he dhals gets cooked.
2. Heat oil in the frying pan. Add panch poran once the oil is hot.
3. Once it splutters add onion,garlic and the green chillie. Fry until onions becomes soft and translucent.
4. Stir in tomatoes and fry until the tomatoes get soft.
5. Then add the cooked dhal and mix it well.
6. Add cumin,coriander,garam masala, red chillie powder and salt.
7. Add the coconut milk and let the dhal simmer for 5 minutes
8. Serve it paratha or roti.



That is a very new kind of dal for me. Will surely try it out :)
