Cucumber Masoordal

This is a quick dal recipe:
1 cup Masoor dal
1 Cucumber
1 Tomato
2 Green Chilies
Sambar powder
Tamarind juice

Peel and cut cucumber and chop tomatoes. Wash and drain water for the dal. Add dal, cucumber and tomatoes to a vessel and pressure cook till the dal is nicely done. Remove and keep aside.

Take 2 tsp of oil in a sauce pan and make tadka (poppu) with jeera, mustard seeds, few fenugreek seeds, hing and a red chili. Add chopped green chilies and fry for a few seconds.

Then add cooked dal, salt, turmeric, 1 tsp sambar powder, tamarind juice and coriander. Bring to a boil and remove from flame.

This is a quick to cook dal dish. Chopped garlic and onions can also be used and should be fried in the oil after the tadka.

Serve it with hot rice or chapati.
