khadi daal

I decided to post the recipe of the " khadi daal" for my bachelor friends who are away from home for work and just started cooking , to survive :) its simple and can be cooked in few minutes.
It can be made from both " masoor daal "(orange lentil) or moong daal" it goes well with chapathi or rice

1 Cup masoor daal
1 small onion
1 tbsp cooking oil
3/4 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp tumeric powder
1/2 tsp ginger and garlic paste
2 red chillies
fresh coriander(optional)
curry leaves
1 cup water.

wash daal and keep it soaked in water. Chop onions and green chillies take a bowl and heat oil and then put chopped onions, green chillies saute till onions are translucent ,reduce the flame add ginger and garlic paste , redchilli powder , tumeric powder, daal(drain it) curry leaves and saute it for 2 minutes add water cover the lid let it cook for sometime. when you see steam coming out of it lid , remove lid add chopped coriander and let it cook on low on flame.
it will cooked in very less time and its easy to cook after a hectic day in office.
