sabz arhar dal

Sabz arhar dal or sabzi wali arhar dal is super nutritious as well as tasty. It's a combination of taste and health. This recipe of arhar dal contains proteins from dal and goodness of vegetables. I find it so delicious that I just can't stop at 1 bowl. I have to reach for second helping. You can add any number of vegetables you have in your fridge and as per your taste.
Recipe of Sabz arhar dal
1 cup arhar dal (split pigeon pea, toor dal, toovar dal)

1. Wash and soak arhar dal for 20 minutes, drain.
2. In a pressure cooker, place arhar dal, vegetables, garlic, salt, turmeric and red chilli powder. Add enough water and let 1 whistle come. Turn the heat to medium and pressure cook to 4 more whistles.
3. Let the pressure drop down naturally before opening the lid.
4. In a small pan, heat ghee. Add rai and when it splutters, add hing. Let it fry for 1 second. Turn off the heat. Pour this tadka or tempering over the boiled dal and mix. Serve hot sabz arhar dal with boiled rice or roti.
