Masoor Dal | Whole Masoor Dal Recipe

Masoor-Dal-Recipe
Masoor Ki Dal or whole (sabut) masoor dal/brown lentil is one of our favorite dal. It's very easy to prepare and goes well with rice or roti/paratha and we doesn't required any other vegetables as side, just a simple salad, pickle and/or papad and you have a comfort meal which by itself is lavish. Masoor dal is high in protein, folic acid, iron and zinc. and it's way healtheir than skinned masoor dal (dhuli masoor dal)or pink dal as some calls it or Maisoor paruppu as in Tamil.


In my home normally dhuli masoor dal was used and it does yum but after DH introduced whole masoor dal to me I have never looked back towards skinned version and change my sister, my SIL to use whole masoor dal too. Both the whole and skinned does taste different and whole masoor dal is more filling than the skinned version. This dal by itself acts also as a sabzi so in general it's not very diluted but on thicker side.

We are not suppose to cook the dal until it's mashed too so always cook so it can retain the shape but then cooked fully. If you have soaked dal for long time then try with 2 whistles and don't mashed the dal as we do with other dals too.  I make this masoor dal at least weekly once, so you can guess the love for this dal :)
