Whole Masoor Dal (Red Lentil Soup)

Yum

I love any kind of dals. I have been cooking different kinds of dal at least 3 days of week. My mom used to make this dal and every time she made it , me , my elder sister and my dad we all loved it very much. My mom is a great cook so is my sister. I try to make it like them and every time it turns out good too. You can make this dal thick or thin as per your liking. I like thick so I made it that way. But you can adjust water ratio as per your taste.

Ingredient:
1 cup whole red masoor
1 tsp chana dal
1 onion chopped
2 Tomatoes chopped
Ginger - green chilies paste 1 tsp
garlic paste 1 tsp
salt as per taste
turmeric powder 1 tsp
coriander powder 1 tsp
cumin powder 1 tsp
red chili powder 2 tsp ( I like spicy so )
oil 2-3 tsp

Method:
Rinse Masoor in water few times.
Take pressure cooker and heat oil in it.
Add chopped onion and cook till it changes it color to little brown.
then add ginger , green chilies paste and garlic paste along with all powder masala and chopped tomatoes.
cook till oil floats on top.
Add masoor and 1 glass of water and cook it till 5-6 whistles. (it depend upon your dal and cooker)

Adjust the consistency and garnish with coriander leaves and serve it hot with rice or chapati or naan.
