Yellow dal is a staple dish in Indian homes . It is simple and comforting dish which goes well with rice and roti too. I used moong dal in this recipe, you can replace it with toor dal too.

Preparation time: 5 mins | Cooking time: 20 minutes | Serves 3-4
|YELLOW MOONG DAL(PASIPARUPPU)||1 CUP|
|SAMBAR POWDER||1 1/4 TSP(CAN REPLACE WITH REDCHILLI POWDER AND CORIANDER POWDER)|
|TOMATO||1 NO(CUT INTO THIN STRIPES)|
|TURMERIC POWDER||A PINCH|
|KASTURI METHI||A PINCH|
Then add the sambar powder and add 2 cups of water. Add the turmeric powder. Let this boil for 3-5 mins. Then add the moong dal and add salt. Close the cooker with lid and cook till 6-7 whistles.
When it is done add the milk and boil for 2 mins. Finally add kasturi methi and garnish with coriander leaves.
Adding milk gives a creamy texture and kasturi methi gives an exotic flavor.
Serve hot with roti/rice.
