Spicy Panchmel Dal with Hot Tomato Rasam




I tried tomato rasam from Premas space, tangy and hot at the same time I guess this is the best thing for winters, Prema has linked varities of rasams in her post do hop in at her space if you guys are rasam lover like me,these days our dinner is soup most of the time,so I keep looking for recipes on blogosphere which I can try,...:-)
Panchmel Dal/Panchratan Dal/Mixed Dal
,.\ Coming back to todays  post, I gonna share recipe of Panchmel dal also known as mixed dal.Mixed dal is readily available in market or it can be prepared at home by mixing 5 kinds of lentils which are moong dal,masoor dal,toovar dal,chana dal and dhuli urad dal. To prepare mixed dal,  pressure cook it the same way normal lentil or toor dalalso known as arhar is  prepared with salt ,turmeric and enough water to cook the dal, once done prepare tempering,heat ghee in non stick pan, add cumin seeds, followed by  chopped onion,green chili and tomatoes once mushy add coriander powder ,red chili powder and garam masala,mix well till oil is seen along the sides,add chopped coriander leaves and temper the dal with this mixture.Bit spicy panchmel dal with baingan bharta and chapati was perfect for us.
