Dal is something we Indians are used to eating daily and call it our comfort food..eat it with roti, nan, or rice..tastes great and a great source of daily protein requirement. Though most dals are easy to make and every dal can be made in variety of ways.

This recipe is for the simple to make yet tasty Urad dal(washed split or washed whole) and is also my entry to Srivalli's My legume love affair, the seventh helping event originally started by susan from Well Seasoned cook

  • 1 cup washed Urad dal(split or whole)- whole tastes better
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 th teaspoon
  • Salt to taste
  • Onion - one small
  • Red chilli powder
  • Ghee/oil for tadka

For dal-

  • Boil the dal with turmeric powder and salt - cook till done, it should not be pasty.

For tadka-

  • In a separate pan heat oil and fry onions till golden brown, close the heat and add red chili powder.
Add tadka on top of dal and serve hot with chapati-
