  • Recipe Ingredients list10gms Oil or Ghee
  • Recipe Ingredients list1 tsp Dhaniya Powder

Wash and pressure cook the Masoor Dal for 3 whistles or till fully cooked with 2 cups of water. While the dal cooks, prepare Soya Keema as per packet instructions. I boiled it in water for 4-5 minutes, drained and squeezed the excess water out.


Take a kadhai/wok, add oil and once hot, add jeera, bay leaf and cardamom. Once fragrant, add ginger garlic and cook for 1 minute. Then add drained and squeezed soya keema and saute on medium flame for 2 minutes.


Next add the boiled dal, all dry/powdered spices, kasoori methi, green chilly, salt and cook on medium flame for 5 minutes, while stirring every minute or so.


Finally, reduce the flame to lowest, cover and cook for 10 minutes to let all the flavours to blend well. After 10 minutes, sprinkle chopped coriander and serve hot
