Fried Toor Daal

The ultimate comfort food when the world gets you down. Serve with basmati rice, or fresh parathas.


2 cups toor daal (pigeon peas)
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 large red onion diced
5-7 Thai green chillies (substitute by serranos)
salt to taste


Cook the daal in 3 cups of water (+ salt.) Alternately, just pressure cook it until it is soft (but not mushy.)

When that's done, in a separate vessel, heat some oil. Toss in the cumin and stir; add the onions and chillies and fry for a few mintues; add in the daal, and cook for 5-6 minutes.

That's it!
