Lauki Daal

My husband had this at an Indian restaurant and really liked it. So to make him happy, I made it today and omg, it tasted too good. Its such an easy recipe and so heallthy. Its a good twist to same old boring daal or just ghiya and feels wholesome. Here's the recipe, njoy :)

  1. 1 small lauki (cut into 1/4th inch pcs)
  2. chana daal (1/2 katori soaked for an hr)
  3. 1/4 onion (cut into small pcs)
  4. 1 inch ginger grated
  5. 1 dry red chilli broken                                  
  6. hing (1/2 tsp)
  7. salt (3/4th tsp)
  8. haldi (1/4th tsp)
  9. ghee (1 tbsp)
  10. garam masla (1/2 tsp)
  11. jeera (1/2 tsp)
  12. cilantro for garnishing

  • In a pressure cooker, add ghee. Add in jeera, onions, hing, haldi, red chillli, grated ginger and saute.
    Add in ghiya pcs and saute for 1 min.

Add in the soaked daal. Now add 3 katori water approx. Dont overadd water since lauki has water in it. Close pressure cooker and get 3 whistles on high and then simmer for 7-8 mins.

    Open pressure cooker once all steam is out. Add in cilantro and garam masala and give a good stir

    Delicious lauki daal is ready, njoy :)
