Whole Masoor Dal (Red Lentil Soup)

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.

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

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.
