Mixed Tadka Dal With Rice || Tadka Dal With Rice || How to make mixed dal with rice with step-by-step photos and video
Mixed Tadka Dal is literally a delicious and mouthwatering kind of cooked dal. which has an amazing and flavored taste that attracts it and goes well with rice and chapatis
Mixed tadka dal is made from various kinds of lentils, which lentils will be used in the mixed dal is totally your choice, here I used moong (yellow lentil), masoor (pink or orange), and sabut masoor (black whole lentil) to make mixed dal. this is a delicious, aromatic, and flavored lentil recipe, I just put Tarka over the dal but you can fry it as well to enhance the taste of the dal.
Most people in Pakistan love to eat dal chawal/lentil rice in their lunch. a popular recipe is considered especially during summer. I prepared mixed dal tadka with steamed rice. it is made with onion, tomato, and spices. literally, relish this mouthwatering mildly spiced with roti, naan, or your favorite steamed rice. additionally. Dal fry version I will add the later on the post. Here I also cooked steamed rice alongside dal that you can watch in a video, but not explain in a post as my focus of the post is dal
What is the Difference between Dal Tadka and Dal Fry?
Both these lentil recipes are made with different cooking techniques. while the ingredients are more or less the same, the unique cooking method implied, makes a difference to the final flavors and taste
In a dal Tadka:
Moong masoor dal is cooked with aromatics like onion, garlic or ginger, turmeric, and tomatoes, after being lightly mashed, a tadka, or tempering mixture (fried in ghee or oil) of spices, herbs, and seasonings is added to the dal. then mixed and serve
For a dal fry:
The dal is simply cooked plain or with the addition of turmeric. which is then mixed with a sauteed onion-tomato base and further simmered
Both of these recipes are famous in the Dhaba (highway and roadside eateries)in Pakistan.
Ingredients of this dal:
I used those ingredients which are easily available in every desi kitchen.
Veggies: you will need onion, tomatoes both finely chopped for this dal fry recipe
Green chilies: not as hot as jalapenos but the just-right level of spice for the dish
Garlic: the subtle flavor is essential in this recipe. but if you don’t like to add garlic to it, they might well skip it. though some flavor profiles will be amiss
Dry red chilies: dry red chilies bring a mild-spicy flavor to dal. but if you are not a spice-lover then skip it but I highly recommend using dry red chilies in tadka to make a more aromatic and flavor dal recipe
Coriander leaves: this simple herb brings a much-needed hint of freshness to the dal tadka
Cumin seeds: adding crackle cumin to dal is the most important part of any type of making dal. cumin plays a good role to bring aroma and flavor to dal.
Additional seasoning: you will also need several pantry staples, including ginger, turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chili powder,garam masala, oil, and salt
