Panchwati tadka dal

Eating right amount of protein and various kind of protein is very important for our health. For vegetarian it gets difficult and specially eating every dal in these busy life gets too difficult. I do like various dals so I came up with following yummy and most simple dal recipe with loads of different protein from 5 different dals.

Yellow Moong dal / split yellow gram: 1.5 cups
Channa dal / Split Bengal gram gram: 2 table spoon
Toor dal / Split red gram : 2 table spoon
Green moong dal / split green gram: 2 table spoon
Masoor dal /Split Red lentil: 2 table spoon
Turmeric: 1 tea spn
Red chili powder: 1 tea spn
Green chili: 3-4 (depending on taste)
Garlic: 3-4 cloves
Salt to taste
Ghee : 1.5 table spn
Oil: 1 table spn
Cumin seeds: 2 tea spn
Asafoetida: 1/2 tea spn

Mix all dals in a bowl. Wash them with two waters.
Note: always wash dal or rice with two waters before cooking. Do not over wash them.

Soak all dal with warm water for at least 30 minutes upto 1 hour.

Cook by adding salt, turmeric and 1/2 table spoon of ghee until soft.
Fine chop garlic and wash and fine chop green chilies.
In pan add oil and ghee each one table spn. Once hot add cumin seeds add garlic and chilies when cumin splutter. Let garlic and chilies get slight burnt.
Add asafoetida, in the end add red chili powder and add this to dal.
Red chili powder will give nice color to the dal.

Put dal on heat and stir well. Bring it for one boil and garnish with chopped coriander.

Serve with hot with tandoori rotis , paratha or rice.
