i guess dal recipes are such a common recipe in every indian household, yet we do not give great importance to it. even i had missed this simple and healthy masoor ki daal from my blog, though i prepare it quite often like once or twice a week. every time i prepare it, i introduce some variation to masoor dal and it could be in thickness, tempering or even mix it with other dal. i even experiment by adding fried chopped garlic as tempering with normal tadka. lately, i have started to skip the tomatoes too, and just add finely chopped red onions and with some lemon juice.

while the recipe of masoor ki daal is so simple and there isn’t any complicated steps. yet i would like to share few tips and recommendations for a perfect masoor dal recipe. i have pressure cooked the dal for 3 whistles which is more than enough for red lentil to cook. comparatively, it get cooked much faster than toor dal or chana dal. secondly, you can extend the same recipe by adding some methi leaves, palak leaves or even with lauki to make its respective masoor dal tadka recipe. finally, if you like to make it more creamy than i would recommend to add quarter cup of coconut milk just before adding tadka.
