|A simple tomato onion salad|
Moong dal – 2 cups
Dill – 1 bunch
Onion – 1 small
Garlic – 5 cloves
Curry leaves – 1 stalk
Cumin seeds – 2 tsp
Dry red chilli flakes – 2 tsp
Turmeric powder – 2 tsp

- Don’t use the thick woody stems in this curry as it bring forth the sharp taste of the dill.
Pressure cook moong dal with salt and turmeric till the first whistle is about to come. Keep the cooked moong dal aside.
Heat oil in a pan, allow cumin seeds to splutter, then add curry leaves. Add garlic and onion. Allow the onion to go a little brown. Now tip in dry red chilli flakes and turmeric powder. Fry for a minute. Immediately add dill leaves and cooked dal. Allow it to boil and thicken.
Serve the curry runny or thick as desired.
