  • 1 cup Split Red Gram Lentils/Masoor Dal
  • 2 tbsp edible oil
  • 2 slit green chillies
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds jeera
  • 3-4 curry leaves
  • 1 small sized onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 large Tomato finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp coriander leaves for garnishing


  • Firstly, wash the lentils and soak in water for about 30 minutes.
  • Take a cooking pan, heat oil, add the cumin seeds allow it to splutter, add slit green chillies, curry leaves, saute well.
  • Add the chopped onions and fry till golden brown.
  • Add the ginger garlic paste and add tomato, add  red chilli powder, turmeric powder and then add the red gram/masoor dal, mix well.
  • Add water and cook till the dal is tender. If it is not tender then cook till it gets soft.
  • Add salt and cook for few minutes.
  • Finally, garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
  • Serve with rotis or parathas.


If Dal is pressure cooked then the Dal can be pressure cooked for about 1 or two whistles. Salt is added at the end as the dal takes a long time to get tender if salt is added to the dal at the beginning stage. If there is no time to soak the dal then pressure cook with one more extra whistle.
