    We used to call this as pappula kura(lentils curry) back home.

    Ingredients

    1. Chopped Tomato – 3 cups
    2. Chopped onion – 1 cup
    3. Chana Dal – 1/2 cup, soak in water for 30 minutes
    4. Green chili – 2, finely chopped
    5. Salt – 1 teaspoon
    6. Red chili powder – 1 tea spoon
    7. Masala Powder – 1/4 teaspoon
    8. Curry leaves – 10
    9. Mustard seeds – 1/4 teaspoon
    10. Cumin seeds – 1/4 teaspoon
    11. Turmeric – 1/4 teaspoon
    12. Oil – 2 tablespoons
    13. Coriander – Hand full

    Cooking Procedure

    1. Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, mustard seeds and let them splutter. Add curry leaves, turmeric and after 30 seconds add chopped onions, tomato and green chilies. Close the lid and cook for about 10 minutes under medium heat until the tomatoes are soft.

    2. Add soaked chana dal and let it cook for another 15 minutes. Keep smashing tomatoes in between with a spoon. Once chana dal is cooked, add salt, red chili powder, masala powder, cook for 2 more minutes, add coriander and turn off heat.

    Tip: If you don’t have enough time to soak chana dal, you may soak for 5 minutes and microwave them for 3-4 minutes to cook.
