Dal Tadka

Dal Tadka,is a very easy and simple dish,comes handy when we dont have time for ellaborate cooking.
Its nothing but a tempering of cooked toor dal or moong dal.Usually,kids enjoy this dish a lot ,as it has less spice and healthy too.Today ,my H was not well.So , to feed him a simple side dish for chapathis, I prepared these.For a quite dinner,this tadka is very apt.


Ingredients:
1.Toor dal                    -        1/2 cup
2.Turmeric pwdr          -        1/4 tsp
3.Garlic pods                -        3
4.Oil                              -        few drops

For Seasoning          
1.Oil                    -        1 tbsp
2.Mustard seeds  -         1/2 tsp
3.Cumin seeds     -         1/2 tsp
4.Pepper corns    -          4 to 5
5.Curry leaves     -         few springs
6.Garlic pods      -          1(Crushed)
7.Red chillies      -          4
8.Hing                  -          a pinch
9.Cilantro for garnishing

Method:
* Pressure cook the toor dal for 3 whistles ,along with turmeric pwdr,garlic and few drops of oil.
* Take a pan and splutter with the seasoning ingredients.
*  Pour them into the cooked dal and garnish with cilantro.
* Simple dal tadka is ready .
* It can be served with rotis,rice....

Note:
We can also use moong dal .When we use ghee instead of oil for tempering,the flavor doubles.
