Dal Tadka Recipe

Here's a basic recipe for making Dal Tadka using Roopak's Dal Tadka masala:

  • 1 Cup yellow lentils (toor dal)
  • 2 Tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 2 Green chilies, slit lengthwise
  • 2 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-Inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 1 Teaspoon Roopak's Dal Tadka masala
  • 1/2 Teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Water
  • 2 Tablespoons ghee (clarified butter) or oil
  • 1 Teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 Teaspoon mustard seeds
  • A pinch of asafoetida (hing)
  • Fresh coriander leaves for garnish
  • Rinse the lentils under cold water until the water runs clear. Drain well.
  • In a pressure cooker or a large pot, add the lentils, chopped tomatoes, chopped onion, green chilies, minced garlic, grated ginger, Roopak's Dal Tadka masala, turmeric powder, salt, and enough water to cover the lentils by about 1 inch.
  • If using a pressure cooker, cook the lentils on medium heat for about 4-5 whistles or until they are soft and mushy. If using a pot, bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer, covered, for about 30-40 minutes or until the lentils are soft and cooked through.
  • Once the lentils are cooked, use a whisk or a spoon to mash them to your desired consistency. Add more water if the dal is too thick.
  • In a separate small pan, heat ghee or oil over medium heat. Add cumin seeds and mustard seeds. When the seeds start to splutter, add a pinch of asafoetida and fry for a few seconds.
  • Pour this tempering over the cooked dal and mix well.
  • Let the dal simmer for another 5-10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with rice or Indian bread like roti or naan.
