Mix Pulses in Sour Green Masala Curry / Mix Dal Khatta Hara Masala Curry Mei

Mix Pulses in Sour Green Masala Curry / Mix Dal Khatta Hara Masala Curry Mei.....

As extreme Summer is in... I don't feel like cooking, neither there is any appetite. Only thing I feel like is either have some thing tangy or some thing cool to drink. I has some pre soaked mix pluses and few green small size mangoes. So made this tangy curry to have it with rice, roti or paratha. Tasted quite tangy.... give it a try for yourself.

To make the Sour Green Masala 
6 Garlic cloves 
1 small piece of Ginger 
2 tbsp Coriander leaves 
1 small Green Mango cut into wedges
2 Green chillies

Grind all the above ingredients in a grinder.

To make the Curry 
2 cups  Mix pulses washed and soaked for 6 hours (Black chana and Green Chana / Chickpeas,  Moong / Whole Green gram,  Dried Chawali / Black eyed beans, Whole Massor Dal / Whole Red  Lintel, Matki / Moth Beans)
1 Onion chopped 
1 Tomato chopped 
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder 
1/2 tsp Garam Masala powder 
1/2 tsp Curry powder 
Salt to taste 
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds 
1 Dry whole Red Chilli broken into pieces 
Green Masala 
1 tbsp Ghee 
Few Coriander Leaves for Garnishing

Take a pressure cooker. Add the pulses and 4 cups of water. Pressure cook it on low flame till 4 whistles or till done. Let the pressure release.  Add 2 cups of water. Add the salt, turmeric powder, curry powder and garam masala powder. Let it simmer on low flame. Take a pan, add ghee. Let it heat. Add cumin seeds and whole red chilli. Let the cumin seeds crackle. Add the onions and saut√© it till brown in colour. Add the green masala and the tomato. Saut√© it for 5 minutes until mushy. Add the seasoning to the mix pulses. Cook further for 5 minutes. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with Rice, Roti or Paratha.......
