Gujarati Series: Suva-Tuver Daal Bhaji (Dill with Toor Daal)



A Gujarati Classic and a favorite in my home, this is one curry I am especially fond of. This is one of the healthiest and the simplest curries to make and the taste of the dill blends so well with the lentils, it is just a delight to eat.

Though I serve it with a Gujarati Kadhi, this can be had with some chapatis for a filling meal.

You will need:

  • 1-2 bunches Fresh Dill, washed and chopped ( See Sidebar for Info.)
  • 1 cup- Toor Daal, Washed and cooked
  • 3-4 Cloves of Garlic - chopped
  • 1 tsp- Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp- Turmeric
  • 1 tbsp Pickle Masala Powder
  • 1 tbsp- Oil
  • Salt- to taste
Wash the Dill really well and chop finely. Cook toor daal with enough water to leave it a bit thick, do not let it get too runny.

In a pan, heat the oil and add the chopped garlic. When the garlic starts to sizzle, add the chopped Dill and stir for a few minutes. Sprinkle some water if it gets dry, and cook until the dill is soft. Add the seasonings and the cooked toor daal. Check for the spices and add a little bit of water if it looks dry. Cook for 5-7 more minutes.

Serve hot with chapatis and yogurt.

Trupti, Wow adding pickle masala powder to the daal seems very interesting. Hope you are doing fine buddy. I was out on a small vacation with my in-laws. Have to catch up a lot now.

GET TO KNOW: BLACK CUMIN SEEDS

black cumin seeds = royal cumin seeds = kala jeera = shahi jeera = saah jeera Pronunciation: KUH-min Notes: Indian cooks use this spice in many of their curries and tandoori dishes. It's darker and sweeter than ordinary cumin. To bring out its nutty flavor, it helps to toast the seeds briefly before using them. Substitutes: cumin (Not as sweet as black cumin.) OR nigella
