Tur ki Khadi Daal

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

I was a picky-eater as a kid and there were very few things I ate and this daal happens to be one of them. When cooked, the daal is firm yet soft and the herbs and spices  enhance the flavor in a beautiful way leaving you wanting more:) I enjoy it with some plain boiled rice!


  • Tur daal(split pigeon peas)- 1 cup, soaked for one hour
  • salt- to taste
  • turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
  • red pepper powder-1 tsp
  • tomatoes on the vine-2 medium, chopped
  • onion-1 big, sliced
  • ginger-garlic paste-1 tsp
  • cilantro-1/2 cup, chopped
  • oil2 tbs
  • water-1/2 cup


1.Mix all the ingredients except the oil and set aside for 15 minutes.

2. Heat oil in a pot and put the mixture of the daal.

3. Pour water and cook on high heat for 6-7 minutes. 

4. Stir gently and lower the heat to a medium and cook for another 8-10 minutes. 

5. Give it a stir and cook on low heat for 5 more minutes and turn off the stove. 

6.Transfer to a  serving bowl, garnish with cilantro leaves. Enjoy!
