Vegetable Dhal Curry

Feel like having something spicy and appetizing....try this for a change !

No meat,...purely vegetables and spices.

Erh...actually I loved eating the green thing shown in the picture, I don't know what it's called, all I know is you are suppose to eat the seed from the green thing only and it looks like the seed from the okra....can somebody tell me what's that green thing called....

In a pot add in the Water, Garlic, Potatoes, Carrots, Red Chilli, Onion and Dhal. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and let it simmer till the dhal is soft.

In a separate pan, heat up the oil and add in the mustard seed. Let it pop ! Add in the garlic, shallots, fennel, cumin, coriander, chilli powder, turmeric power and the curry leaves. Saute for 2-3min. Once fragrant, add these mixtures in the pot.

Throw in the tomatoes, cauliflower and let it cook for 10-15min.

Season with salt

Serve with steamed white rice.
