Tuar Daal....Sindhi Style


A simple,light yet delicious daal served with boiled rice.This daal is cooked at least once in a week in Sindhi kitchens.The traditional combination is ..daal chaavar  taryal patata (daal..rice and fried potatoes)…but with growing awareness no one wants to eat fried potatoes…so I make some green veggie as the side dish but yes I will still share the recipe of these potatoes(..as they are a treat to eat…) in my  future posts.

1cup……..tuar daal
2 big……..tomatoes
1 stem.…curry leaves
½ tsp…....turmeric pwd
½ tsp…...ghee
Salt to taste

Wash the daal and boil till cooked with tomatoes,curry leaves,turmeric pwd,ghee and salt.
Using a blender ,blend the daal so curry leaves and tomato too is blended.Strain this.



Tempering
2 tbsp…....oil
¼ tsp…….jeera
¼ tsp…….rai
¼ tsp…….methi dana
Pinch…… hing
¼ tsp….... finely chopped ginger
¼ tsp…….finely chopped green chilly
2-3 ….....…whole red chilly
¼ tsp……. red chilly pwd
¼ tsp…….curry powder(sambar or rasam)(optional)
1tsp………lemon juice
small bunch of coriander leaves.


The tempering has to go in the order I have written down.
Heat oil add jeera,next rai next methi….and so on..once all the ingredients go in( keep water handy ),add ¼ cup water and cook this masala,add the boiled ,blended,strained daal.
Cook for about 7-10 mins.
