Masoor dal - 1 cup
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Curry leaves
Coriander leaves
Turmeric powder
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Green chillies - 2
Red chilli - 2
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp

1. Put the masoor dal in a pressure cooker and add turmeric powder and water and cook it
2. Pour some oil in a pan and add cumin seeds, curry leaves,red chilli, green chillies(chopped), onion and fry well until the onion turns transparent
3. Then add tomatoes and add turmeric powder,garam masala, salt and fry well until the tomato dissolves
4. Mix the dal with the gravy and allow it to boil
5. Garnish it with coriander leaves
Serve this with chappati

Tip: If u have leftover dal use the dal instead of water for making chappati dough. The chappati will taste delicious but remember to take all the chillies out of the dal before using it for dough
