Cooking with Merci

Merci taught me to make Dahl today. It was cool. I liked making it. Here is the recipe for Dahl by Merci.


2 onions, chopped

2 tomatoes, chopped

2 green chilies, chopped

3 tablespoons fresh coriander

pinch of mustard seeds

pinch of white lentils

a few curry leaves

2 cloves of garlic


lemon juice

Cook the lentils until they are soft. In another pan heat up the veg. oil. After the oil is hot add the mustard seeds and white lentils. Watch out they pop when you add them. Next add the curry leaves, sliced onions, chopped chillies and tomatoes. Add the garlic too. Cook them together for 2-3 minutes (you can also add quarter teaspoon of turmeric powder to the mixture). Add them all together to the cooked lentils. Add salt and lemon juice accordingly. At the very end, add fresh chopped corriander leaves. Bring them to a boil. Remove it from the stove. Bon Apetite!
