Dal tamatar or tomato dal is one of the favorite dal recipe in our home and this is my sister recipe. There are many ways of making dal and daal tamatar and this is sure one of the easy recipe. My sister makes this so perfect, it just taste delicious. Tomato dal get pair along with roti or rice perfectly and it's wonderful with rasam-rice too. This is one of the easy method of making dal tamtar or tomato dal and very quick too.


I struggle for some time to get the perfect tomato dal like my sister makes only until once I saw each step how she does and I found out the secret ingredient which makes the dal totally delicious is ghee, yes that's ghee. Ghee and oil makes different in taste so you can choice whatever you like but if you want you dal to be extra delicious then give the tempering or tadka with ghee and be a little generous.

Serve hot or warm with a dollop of ghee along steamed rice and any side of your choice. I made besanwali bhindi along this time.

Notes
  • You can add chopped tomato while cooking dal too.
  • Ghee tempering adds wonderful flavors to dal, but you can do the same with oil too, no issues.
  • Same you can do with toor/arhar dal or split pigeon peas.

Delicious dal tamatar goes well with rice or roti.
