Hyderabadi Khatti Daal( Daal curry)

"khatti daal" the dish loved by most hyderabadis. Umm it tastes great!Khatti daal and tala-hua Goshth(fried meat)for lunch is just irresistible.The tadaka which we put in khatti daal gives a awesome aroma to the daal,making it more tempting.

2 cups tuwar daal(yellow lentil).
2 tsp red chilli powder.
1 tsp tumeric powder.
6-7 green chillies
2 tsp`Ginger garlic paste.
2 large tomatoes.
curry leaves
chopped Corainder leaves
tamarind pulp 2tsp (or more according to taste)
For tadaka:
Dried red chillies 4
mustard seeds 1tsp
methi seeds(dried fenugreek seeds) 1/4tsp
kalongi seeds 1 tsp
Cumin seeds 2 tsp
whole garlic cloves 2
oil 2 tbspoon.

Put daal, redchilli powder,turmeric powder,ginger garlic paste,
cut tomatoes,green chillies, coriander and enough water to pressure cook it for up to 5 to 6 whistles.Remove from fire and blend it.
Add tamarind pulp, coriander leaves,curry leaves and water ;cook for another 10 15 minutes.
Heat oil in kadai add garlic cloves,dried red chillies,mustard seeds,cumin seeds, kalongi seeds, methi seeds.Put this tadaka in the dal and cover the dal with the lid.Ahah!the exotic aroma of daal can be smelled.

Different types of khatti dal

Kairi ki khatti daal: we can also use raw mango,instead of tamarind pulp in which u need to add chopped raw mangoes to the dal before its being pressure cook.(one medium sized raw mango,its should NOT be sweet).

Kacchi Imli di daal:( Raw green tamarind daal). To make this daal we need to substitute tamarind with raw tamarind pulp. The raw green tamarind must be boiled for sometime to make them soft and then sieve the pulp.Use this pulp instead of tamarind paste, the remaining procedure for kachii imli ki daal is same.

Nimboo ki daal(lemon daal) this is the easiest daal according to me, just use lemon juice instead of tamarind pulp.
And here is the fried meat(tala-hua Goshth) which I made;my husband loves this combination of khatti daal and fried meat.(I will post its recipe sometime later).

Maimoona, I am software guy who has passion for cooking like you do.

I would like to comment on your khatti dal recipe. You said to add hari mirch with toor daal. But when we are using toor daal we use lal mirch. With masoor daal we use hari mich and leembu juice instead of imli!
