DAL VANGI / BRINJAL WITH DAL



DAL VANGI / BRINJALS WITH DAL

INGREDIENTS

Seedless brinjal (cubed)
1 cup
Toor dal / (soaked)
½ cup
Garlic
3 – 4 flakes
Chilli pdr
½ tsp
Salt
T.T.
TADKA
Jeera / cumin seeds
¼ tsp
Heeng / asafoetida
¼ tsp
Haldi / turmeric pdr
¼ tsp


METHOD:

1.       Cube the brinjals in big chunks and immediately put them in cold water. This will prevent them from turning black. Soak the toor dal for 30 mim.

2.       Heat oil, add chopped garlic and heeng. Add haldi and little chilli pdr. Immediately add in the brinjal pieces.

3.       Cover and cook for some time till they are almost soft.

4.       Now drain out the dal and add it to the brinjals. Mix it well and add 1 cup water.

5.       Bring to boil and simmer covered.

6.       The dal will cook in 8 – 10 min. make sure that even though the dal is cooked it should still retain its shape. At the same time most of the water should have evaporated leaving very little at the bottom.

7.       Add salt and the remaining chilli pdr. Serve hot with jowar or bajra bhakri.
