The simplest dal curry - Mulakoshyam to some!

This is yet another one for B (Gooey Kablooie)

Thur dal - 1 cup washed well
Onion - 1 Sliced
Tomato - 1 sliced
Green chillies - 3 slit
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp

Just put all the ingredient into a pressure cooker with 2 glasses of and cook till 3 whistles. Wait till the steam goes. open the lid, add salt to taste. Temper with

Curry leaves - a handful
oil - coconut oil preferred - 1 tsp

Voila! it's ready. Chuck in a potato to make it thicker. When we add ash pumkin to the same dish, we call it Mulakoshyam. Dunno if it is spelt right, or pronounced right either!!!

If you fry a clove of garlick or seed onions cut into pieces in the oil and temper it, the smell and flavour is amazing.
