Tove (Dal)

Tove is a variety of dal prepared from Moong dal at my home. For some strange reason I wasnt so fond of this dish whenever Amma would make this. Now that I have started cooking for my child, I have realised that its one of the healthiest and is a protein rich dish.


Moong dal- 1/2 cup
Turmeric- 1 tsp
Curry leaves- Few
Coconut milk- 1/2 cup (Extract from a one half of a grated coconut)
Ginger- 1 inch peice; chopped
Green Chillies- 3-4; chopped
Coriander Leaves- Few twigs
Ghee- 1 tsp
Urad dal- 1 tsp
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Red chilly - 1 (Broken into peices)
Asafoetida/Hing- A pinch

Cook Moong dal with 1 1/4 cup of water with Turmeric and Curry leaves. After its cooked, add the Coconut milk, Ginger, Green chillies and Coriander. In a pan, heat ghee. Add Urad dal, Mustard seeds and Red chilly. When the Mustard splutters, add Hing and Curry leaves. Pour this seasoning to the dal and serve hot with Rice.

Preparation Time: 30 Minutes
Serves: 2 People
