Dal Maharani/For Blog Hop Wednesday

Time for Blog Hop Wednesday which I was eagerly waiting for. Today my partner is Vaishali @ Ribbons's to Pasta's. She is multi talented person. I loved all the dishes from her blog and I would like to try too.  For this month's Blog Hop I tried Dal-e-Maharani   for yesterday's dinner and it was a super hit.


Saboot Urad Dal                     One Cup
Turmeric Powder                     1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds                             2tsp
Poppy Seeds                            1 Tbsp
Whole Red Chillies                     4-5
Green Chilly                                 2
Garlic                                          5-6
Ginger juellines                           1 Tbsp
Pure Ghee                                  3 Tbsp
Curd                                           2 Tbsp
Tomato Chopped                        1
Garam Masala                             1 tsp
Paneer Cubes

Pressure cook the dal with salt and a pinch of turmeric at least for 45 minutes on slow fire.
Make a paste of poppy seeds, whole red chilly, garlic cloves and one tspoon of cumin seeds. Set aside.
For the tempering heat ghee in a pan. Add cumin seeds, green chilly, ginger and ready paste. Saute it for a minute. Now add chopped tomato, turmeric powder, curd and garam masala. Cook for about two minutes or until ghee separates from tomatoes. Add Cooked dal and mix well. Cook for another 15 minutes on slow fire.
Add paneer cubes. Garnish with fresh cream, chopped coriander and green chilly and served.
Enjoy with tandoori parantha or nan.
