How to Make Plain Khatti Dal

  • Wash the dal thoroughly.
  • Boil it in a pressure cooker with ginger garlic paste, tomatoes, red chilli powder, turmeric, 4-5 curry leaves, coriander leaves and green chillies.
  • Do not add salt at this stage as the dal won't get boiled properly.
  • When the dal is boiled, mash it and now add salt, jeera powder, tamarind water and a few more curry leaves (6-7) and 1.5 cups water.
  • Stir and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Turn off the flame.
  • Heat oil in a kadai or frying pan.
  • Add all the ingredients for tadka.
  • Be careful that they don't burn.
  • Pour the tadka over the dal and cover with a lid immediately.
  • Serve along with plain rice.
