How to Make Chainsoo

  • Heat a kadhai on moderate flame. Dry-roast the dal for about 3-5 minutes until it emanates an aroma (do not over roast). Take off the flame.
  • Grind the roasted seeds into a coarse powder.
  • Heat oil in a kadhai and add the garlic cloves. When the cloves turn light brown, add cumin seeds, red chillies, black pepper and asafoetida.
  • Immediately add the powdered dal and fry for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add turmeric powder, dry coriander powder, red chilli powder, salt and water. Bring to boil.
  • Cover and cook until the dal becomes very soft. Let the mixture simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  • Before taking off the heat, sprinkle garam masala over the chainsoo.
  • Garnish with pure ghee and chopped coriander leaves.
  • Serve with hot steamed rice.
