Panchmel - Ki - Dal


Panchmel - Ki- Dal is something which I came across in an old issue of Women's Era. I haven't got around to making it at home but would like to share it with you.

This dish is part of a Rajasthani thali which I will be revealing post by post...

Ingredients -
Mixed dal (moong, arhar, chana, masur and urad) - 100 gms
Chilli powder - half tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Coriander leaves (optional) - chopped
Bay leaves - 2

Process -
1. Wash the mixture of dals. Add salt, turmeric powder and sufficient water. Cook till it is done.
Cool and mix well.
2. Heat the ghee in a small frying - pan. Add cumin seeds, asafoetida, bay leaves and chilli powder.
3. Add to the cooked dal. Add garam masala and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot.
