Recipes of Stir fried french beans and Crispy potatoes will follow separately.

Dal shedho means ‘Boiled lentil/ pulses’. Normally Dal shedho goes well with sticky boiled rice with a variety of accompaniments. I love Dal shedho and combine it with just about anything, be it rice, chapati, pooris or paranthas. Many a times, this is only thing I have ย for a meal. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dal shedho can be made of any type of one’s chosen lentil/ pulses, but the best tastes with masoor dal / pink lentil.

Here’s what I did………….

INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup – pink lentil

1 1/4 cup – water

1 nos – finely chopped green chili

1 tsp – chopped onion

1 nos – finely chopped small sized tomato

1 tsp – chopped coriander

1 tsp – mustard oil or clarified butter /ghee

salt to taste

METHOD

Pressure cook the lentil with water and salt to 2 whistles. Let it cool down a little.

Pour the boiled dal/ lentil in a bowl and add all the other ingredients. Mix well.

dal shedho

Serve.

Note : * One can add grated carrot and cucumber to enhance nutrition. A dash of lime can add more zing to this.ย 

**Here I have used mustard oil. One can replace it with butter or clarified butter / ghee.

Happy cooking !! ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers !! ๐Ÿ˜€
