Ingredients

How to Make Lachko or Kathan Dal

  • Wash and clean dal. Soak in pressure cooker with 4 cups water, chopped ginger and turmeric powder. Pressure cook for 20 minutes (reduce the heat to medium after 3 whistles and cook for 15 minutes).
  • When cool, remove and drain out water from top in another bowl and use it for kadhi or osaman.
  • Heat ghee in a small pan and add asafoetida and cumin seeds. Saute for 2-3 minutes until they become fragrant and light brown in colour. Pour this over cooked split gram.
  • Churn the cooked dal to smooth consistency. Return to heat, add salt and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • When it is thick, switch off the gas and serve with rice.
