Does anyone have a tried and tested recipe for the above that can be adapted to suit Tarka,Channa and Moong Dahl.
Looked online and they all seem to differ slightly plus after cooking several at home a lot of recipes appear to end up a little too thick.

Thanks DLM - tried a few off the internet and they just don't taste 'authentic' - might be my cooking though !

If you want it to be authentic....then serve it up on banana leaves.

Seriously though....I've eaten it in india a few times and it is pretty bland at best.

To be fair if you could cook authentic Indian meals at home there wouldn't be any takewaway would there.

Whatever they do or add it's almost impossible for the mere mortals that we are to replicate it.

I make moongh daal like this:

put moogh daal in water from morning to evening time. Then get bit oil, add moongh daal, salt, chilli powder, coriander powder, pinch of turmeric, zeera powder, bit of crushed garlic and ginger. I normally add green chilli as well (up to you if you want to add). let that cook for a bit, make sure it doesnt stick to the pot, then add pulp tomato that has been liquidised, cook a little, add water and cook till done. i dont make it too saucy, just enough. I normally have that with chapatti.

i use the same for chana daal.

Cheers, I'll try this.Just one thing, do I add equal amounts of jeera + corriander? and are the amounts of ginger + garlic equal ?
