Khatta Urad Dal (zero Oil Recipe)
1 cup urad dal (split black lentils)
1/2 cup whisked sour low-fat curds
1/2 tsp garlic (lehsun) paste
1 tsp green chilli paste
salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
2 tbsp chopped coriander (dhania)
Clean, wash and soak the urad dal in enough water in a bowl for 15 minutes. Drain well.
Combine the urad dal and 1½ cups of water in a pressure cooker, mix well and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
Add the curds, 1½ cups of water, garlic paste, green chilli paste, salt and turmeric powder and mix well.
Bring to boil and cook on a slow flame for 10 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
Add the coriander and mix well.
This dal tends to thicken if kept for too long. So, if you have made it in advance, add little water to it and re-heat it before serving.
