Dal kaanda is a spicy maharastrain dal which makes use of goda masala and is a great accompaniment to rice or roti.I had it for the 1st time when i was visiting my inlaws and loved this dal. In their house majority of the cooking was done on wood fire and it surely does impart a different flavor to the dish as well.
Tur Dal 1/2 cup
Onion 2 large ones chopped
Garlic 3 cloves crushed
Oil 1 tbsp
Rai 1/2 tsp
Jeera 1 tsp
Kala/Goda masala 2 tbsp
Roasted peanut powder 2 tbsp
haldi 1/2 tsp
salt to taste
water as required
Wash and dal nicely and drain the water.
Heat oil in a kadai, add rai ,jeera and then add onions and garlic
Saute then for 2 mins on a low flame.
Add dal and saute on a slow flame till u get a nutty aroma of the dal.
Add water and haldi and cook the dal on a medium flame for 15 mins.
The dal will be half cooked at this stage , then add salt, kala masala , peanut powder and mix nicely.
Cook again for the 10-15 mins till the dal is completely cooked but has its shape.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with roti and rice.
