Spring Onion Dal

Hi Friends ,
There is a slight change in the event announcement page.Please check that out and do send in the recipes,dearies.
Coming back to today's recipe -Spring Onion Dal .Who doesn't like dal?? I love it a lot so goes with my kidoos..A rich pack of protein and a healthy treat.Sometimes I even squeeze few drops of lemon on top of dal in the platter,slurp !! Dal can be made plain and can be made along with some veggies or green leafy vegetables.I usually prepare the dal curry with masoor or split moong dal and its invariably a combo with spinach leaves.But for a change,I tried it with spring onions and this turned out very good..A very simple recipe yet a healthy one!!


Ingredients
split moong dal 1/2 cup
spring onion(with stalk n bulb discard the roots)- 12 chopped
garlic 3 cloves sliced
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
chilly powder 1/2 tsp
asafoetida a pinch
salt
For tempering
mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
dry red chilli 3
Curry leaves
oil 2tsp


Method
- Wash and clean the dal .put it in a pressure cooker along with spring onions,sliced garlic,turmeric powder,asafoetida,chilly powder and salt.
-Cook for 2 whistles and put off flame.Wait till pressure is released.
-Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds,dry red chillies and curryleaves.Add into the dal and serve hot.

Servings 4 adults
