  • 1 cup - toovar dal (cover with water, add 1/2 tsp turmeric and cook until the lentils are quite mushy)
  • 1 tsp - mustard seeds
  • 2 red chillies
  • 1 tsp - vegetable oil, like canola
  • A generous pinch of asafetida (hing)
  • 2 tbsp - coconut shreds (optional)
  • 10 curry leaves (optional)
  • Juice of a lemon
  • Salt to taste

How to Make Dalitoy

  • Heat the oil and add mustard seeds and asafoetida.
  • When the seeds splutter, add the curry leaves and red chillies. Stir fry for a couple of seconds.
  • Add the cooked dal and enough water to get a fairly watery consistency. A dalitoy is typically quite thin, although you could make it thicker if you prefer it.
  • Bring the dal to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer for another 10 minutes.
  • Add the coconut shreds and salt to taste.
  • Turn off the heat.
  • Garnish with some fresh coriander, if you like.
