Since we don’t eat dal everyday I try to make them once in while but with lots of love and care.

This elegant ,classic Pakistani dal dish Urad dal is one of my family favorite dal and I make only when my father-in-law is visiting because he really like it. And like any other recipes here are two option one with a lots of spices and fry onion on the top or beautiful tomato sauce which will make this dal to next level. Just make sure the dal fully cooked but still hold it shape .






1-cup urad dal
1 onion chopped
2 tomato chopped 
1 green chili
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 dry plum
1/4 tsp onion seeds
6whole black pepper corns
1 tbsp cilantro chopped
1/4-cup canola oil
4 cloves garlic crushed


Wash and soak dal for 30 minutes.
In a pot add dal and 2 cup of water and cook it on low,  after first add dry plum and salt then  cover and cook for 25 minutes on low. After 20 to 25 minutes remove the cover, lid, and let it cook to evaporates the water.
