Toor ki daal aur methi (Pigeon Peas with Fresh fenugreek leaves)
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem
Did you read a lot of recipes that I call "simple" and "easy" to cook? Ohya, they better be with the kids calling for my my attention or simply wanting to "lift" them up and show them how I cook or simply start a fight over which toy belongs to who!
Yes, this is one of those simple, yet tasty and nutritious daals with fresh, fenugreek leaves. I try to include fresh fenugreek leaves, to most of the things I cook because it has a lot of health benefits (although I would never eat it as a child). Here's how I have cooked this daal without a drop of oil...
Tur daal- 1 cup, washed
turmeric powder-1 tsp
salt- to taste
water-3 cups or more
fresh fenugreek leaves-1 cup, washed and chopped
red chilly powder-1/2 tsp
Method: Pressure cook all the ingredients, except salt. When done, mash it up with a round spoon and add some more water to get a desired consistency. Turn the stove on high and bring to a boil. Transfer to a serving bow. Enjoy!
