Dhabe wali Dal, the name itself explains and make you wanting to have it.. Heavily tempered Arhar / Toor dal with onions, chillies and tomatoes.. Its an easy dal, made in every household but there is something different about that roadside dhabewali dal..Hai na ?? So, here I am sharing the recipe with pics...

Arhar / toor dal / Split pigeon peas- 2 cups
Onion - 1 big chopped in small pieces
Tomatoes - 2 medium chopped in small pieces
Green chillies - 2 chopped
Garlic- 4 cloves chopped
Cumin seeds - 1 tbs
Turmeric powder - 1 tbs
Pure Ghee - 1 tbs


Wash dal and in a pressure cooker add dal, 4 cups water, 1 tbs turmeric powder, salt to taste and let it boil till 3 whistles.

In a pan, heat ghee, add cumin, chopped chillies and garlic. Saute for 1 minute.
Now add chopped onion and saute for 2 minutes and then add chopped tomatoes. Saute for 1 minute.
What gives this dal its Dhaba flavor is , the crispiness of onion and tomatoes, so you don't have to fry the tempering for long.

Now add, boiled dal to the onion tomato tempering and its done.

Garnish with chopped green coriander.
It goes best with Jeera Rice..
