Daal Maash

This is my husband’s favourite daal! It’s pretty easy to make, no tricky part, sinple and straightforward delicious recipe! 

Maash daal (Urad) 1 cup ( keep it soaked in water for 1/2 an hour)

Medium size onion – 1 sliced

Medium size tomato – 1 chopped

Salt – as per your taste 

Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp

Red Chilli Powder – 3/4 tsp 

Green chillies – 2

Fresh corriander – for garnishing 


Heat up oil and light golden fry onion in  it. Make sure you you fry them on low heat. Once they are light golden, add the spices along with a splash of water. Fry for few minutes and then add the chopped tomatoes and green chillies.

Once the oil separates, drain out the water from the daal and add it to the pan.

Mix well! 

Now in the next step, I add 1 cup of water and pressure cook this to 2-3 whistles.

If you don’t have a pressure cooker, then you can add 1 1/2 cup water and cook on slow heat.

Once the daal is cooked, garnish with fresh coriander and serve 🙂
