MAKES 4 SERVINGS


Ingredients

Method

  1. Heat a teaspoon of oil (coconut/sesame oil preferred).⁣

  2. Add 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds in the hot oil. When it splutters, add the ginger and fry a bit, then add the chopped tomatoes and all the powders. Sautee nicely. ⁣

  3. Wash Jhanghora 3 - 4 times until water is clear. (Remember, it's straight from the village!)

  4. Wash dal separately.⁣

  5. Put Jhangora and dal in a steel pot and add 4 cups of water. ⁣

  6. Add salt and the sauteed masala. ⁣Cook covered until desired consistency is reached.

  7. Open and stir in a teaspoon of butter or ghee. ⁣Eat hot

TIP - Use the water you wash the jhangora in to water your plants afterward. It's full of nutrients.
