Menthi koora Pappu/ Methi Daal :


  • Toor dal (kandi pappu) : 1 cup
  • menthu koora / methi leaves : 2 big cups
  • tamarind : small lemon size
  • green chillies : 10 (adjust to ur spice level) cut into pieces
  • onion : 1/2 cup chopped into big pieces
  • turmeric : pinch
 For tempering:
  • Mustard seeds : 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin : 1/2 tsp
  • Garlic cloves : 3
  • Dry red chillies : 2 or 3
  • Curry leaves : few
  • Turmeric : pinch
  • Salt : 1tsp or to taste

Method :

Wash and place the dal in a pressure cooker. Now add the methi leaves and cut green chillies along with tamarind and cut onions.

Add some water and a pinch of turmeric and cook till the dal becomes soft and mushy.It takes about 3 whistles in the pressure cooker.

Let it cool down and then remove the lid and mash it with the masher. Add the salt and adjust it to ur taste.

Now take a small pan and heat some oil and when it becomes hot add the mustard seeds and let them splutter,

now add the cumin and garlic cut into small pieces and red chillies and curry leaves along with little turmeric and pour it over the dal .

Mix well and serve either with roti or rice
