Green Dal (Microwave)

This is my first attempt to make dal in microwave and I was quiet happy with the output. 






Ingredients
Split green moong dal - 1/2 cup
Water -  3 cups or as needed
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/8 tsp
Garam masala - 1/4 tsp


Method

  • Wash and Soak dal for 30 minutes.
  • Wash again and add it to a microwave safe bowl. Take a big bowl otherwise the water may spill.
  • Add 1 1/2 cup water and microwave it for 5 minutes.
  • Mix and add 1 cup water and microwave again for 5 minutes.
  • Mix well and add turmeric powder and salt. Add water if needed. Cover and microwave again for 5 minutes.
  • Mix well and see if the dal is done. If not microwave again covered for  2 minutes.
  • In another microwave safe bowl add ghee and microwave for 1.30 minutes.
  • Add cumin and asafoetida and microwave for another 1 minutes.
  • Add this ghee to dal.
  • Add garam masala and garnish with cilantro leaves or mint leaves.
