How to Make Mag ni Dal

  • Wash the mag.
  • Heat the oil in a vessel.
  • Add mustard and hing.
  • When the mustard starts to pop, add the garlic and mix.
  • After about 15 seconds, add the curry leaves.
  • Add onions and raise the flame a bit.
  • Cook till the onions are golden brown in colour.
  • After 45 seconds to a minute, add the tomatoes and mag, and raise the flame a bit more.
  • Add some water depending on how thick or thin you want the dal to be.
  • Add salt - remember that the tomatoes and onions will give off some water - so think about this in the previous step.
  • Cover the vessel with a lid and heat till the dal is almost cooked.
  • Add turmeric and chilli powder.
  • Add the curds.
  • After some time reduce the flame.
  • Once cooked, add cilantro on top.
  • Do not mix in the dal.
