The green paste gives this otherwise simple dish a complete makeover! It increases the vitamin A content, while the vegetables add fibre. Vitamin A increases immunity and also nourishes our skin and improves vision. Despite the interesting flavour and health benefits, this dish is surprisingly easy to make!
  • ¾ cup toovar (arhar) dal
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
  • salt to taste
  • ¼ tsp asafoetida (hing)
  • ½ tsp roasted cumin seeds (jeera) powder
  • 1½ cups boiled mixed vegetables (carrot, cauliflower, potatoes, onions etc.)
  • ½ cup Green Paste
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup finely chopped coriander (dhania) for the garnish
  1. Clean, wash and soak the toovar dal in water for 2 to 3 hours. Drain and keep aside.
  2. Combine the dal, turmeric powder, salt and 1½ cups of water and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
  3. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid and whisk the dal.
  4. Add the asafoetida, cumin seeds powder, mixed vegetables, green paste and sugar and mix well. Simmer for 6 to 8 minutes.
  5. Just before serving, add the lemon juice and serve hot garnished with coriander.
