Methi dal is one of the very simple recipe. This dal is super tasty and very much healthy to our body. We can prepare the dal for daily meal in every house. Few changes in the normal dal recipe i have done here. I usually prepare dal for steamed rice and jeera rice. The combination for dal and rice is mouthwatering.


Normally, dal is prepared with lentils like toor dal, green gram dal. I have used toor dal and methi leaves for making super healthy dal. Methi leaves are usually a little bit bitter in taste but when you are roasted and added to dal it gives a good taste to the dal. Because of the bitterness of fenugreek leaves, add the little tamarind extract to the dal for great taste.

Consuming of leaves is very good for health so this is best option to use the leaves. Dal recipe is changes in the region wise. While making the Dal cook any lentils with sufficient water and turmeric until it cooks in the pressure cooker or the normal pan. The dal must be well cooked, otherwise mash the lentils using mixer or wired whisk.

Later for dal in the kadai heat the oil and onion and garlic, and various spices and roast it well until aroma will come. You can use green chilly or red chilli powder for spiciness of dal or use both, it is completely optional. Roast the fenugreek leaves, finally add cooked toor dal and mix well and boil for a few minutes.

Tasty and Super easy dal is ready. It is best to include in your diet. This is serve with rice, jeera rice, roti, chapathi etc. Most of the restaurants serve the dal in the thali or for roti’s.
