How to Make Huli

  • Dry roast the ingredients for the masala, powder it in a blender without adding any water.
  • Add coconut and some water to the powdered masala and grind to a smooth paste. Keep aside.
  • Add a couple of drops oil and a pinch of turmeric to the washed toor dal. (Dal is said to cook faster with some oil and turmeric.)
  • Add enough water to cover the tur dal and pressure cook until done - about 3-4 whistles.
  • Meanwhile, clean and cook the vegetables with some salt and water. (You could even combine the vegetables with the dal and pressure cook them. But the vegetables should not get overcooked).
  • Combine the cooked dal, vegetables, coconut-masala paste and mix well.
  • Add water to get the desired consistency.
  • Boil on medium heat for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add salt, jaggery, and tamarind and mix well. Boil further, for another 3-5 minutes and remove from stove.
  • Season with tempered mustard seeds, hing, and curry leaves.
  • Serve hot with rice/idli/dosa.
