Dry chana dal recipe


  1. Rinse the chana dal under running water until the water runs clear.
  2. In a pot, add the rinsed chana dal, water, turmeric powder, and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes or until the dal is tender and cooked through.
  3. Drain any excess water from the pot and set the dal aside.
  4. In a separate pan, heat the oil or ghee. Once hot, add the cumin and mustard seeds and let them sizzle for a few seconds.
  5. Add the chopped garlic, green chili peppers, and dried red chili peppers (if using) and stir-fry for a minute or until fragrant.
  6. Add the cooked dal to the pan and stir well to combine with the seasoning.
  7. Cook the dal on medium heat for a few minutes, or until it starts to become dry and starts to brown on the bottom. Stir occasionally to ensure even cooking and to prevent burning.
  8. Serve hot and garnish with chopped cilantro (if using).
  9. You could also garnish with diced tomatoes and onions, also you could squeeze some lemon juice on top for additional flavor.
