Hi All,

I am back again on 4th day of blogging marathon with a simple dal called masoor dal. As per the understanding some sweet/savory should be  cooked using different dals, but I couldn't do anything due to the following reason:
Red Lenthils

My older son is not well due to throat ache and fever, and once I reach home @ 7pm my little son will be waiting at the door step to hug me and play with me. My mom-in-law would have become so tired bcoz of my naughty little son, so once I go to home, she will handover the kitchen and this little rascala to me. 

Yesterday she had prepared only rasam in the afternoon and my turn was to prepare something for dinner along with rice. I have a super doper brain and I thought of preparing this easy Masoor Dal which will give me a post in the morning. Masoor Dal is also called as Mysore dal or red lenthils. 

Inspired by the posts of Aarthi's blog  I thought let me copy atleast  the method of naming my pictures.


  • 1 cup of Masoor Dal
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
And the other ingredients as shown in picture:
    • 2 chopped onions
  • coriander leaves - few 
  • curry leaves - few 
  • 2 tsp salt and
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sambar powder

  • Cook Masoor dal with tomato and 1 tsp of turmeric in cooker for 3 to 4 whistles
  • Heat Oil in a kadai
  • Add mustard seeds and wait till it splutters, add curry leaves, salt and onions and sauté till they become translucent.
  • Add sambar powder allow it to boil for sometime 
  • Finally, add cooked dal and allow it to boil for some more time
