Tomato Dal/Tomato Pappu

Pin It Now!
Tomato dal or pappu has always been a favorite in my house.The flavors are enhanced when cooked in an earthen pot and in a wood burning stove.I usually cook the plain dal to a thick consistency and refrigerate ahead of time for these kind of dal preparations.A good source of protein,dals are an absolute comfort food be it with rotis or hot steaming rice.

Ingredients - Serves 3
1 medium onion - chopped finely
1 cup cooked toor dal - thick consistency
1-1.5 inch ginger finely chopped
2 tsp sadaf garlic powder(+/- as per taste)
1.5 tbsp oil
Quarter tsp turmeric powder
Salt as per taste
Grind to Puree
1 vine ripe tomato
2-3 hot serrano peppers
Half tsp mustard and cumin seeds
2 sprigs fresh curry leaves
3 tbsp chopped cilantro leaves
Few dry red chillies and splash of hing
1 tbsp oil

Heat oil in a pan add onions,ginger and salt.When the onions turn translucent add the tomato puree,turmeric powder,garlic powder and cook for a few minutes.Add the cooked dal and stir to blend well.In another vessel heat oil add mustard and cumin seeds,when they splutter add red chillies,hing,curry leaves and cilantro leaves.Pour it over the dal.Enjoy it with a dollop of ghee and hot steamed rice.
