Gujarati Osaman Dal

When i made Jeera Rice i need some dal to serve with.I am a big fan of ChefInYou and she got quite a lot of recipes.I was going through her recipes and find this yummy Osaman dal which came really good and its a perfect match to Jeera rice.

This is made with masoor dal which is red in color.With a spoon of tamarind paste and jaggery and with all those tampering this tasted really yummy and tasty and quite easy too.
Though i served with Jeera Rice,can be served with Roti,Chappati or paratha.

Masoor Dhal : 1 cup
Tamarind :a lemon size(soak in warm water)
Turmeric Powder : 1/2tsp
Jaggery : 2tbsp
Peanuts : a handful
Salt : as needed

For Tampering:
Mustard Seeds : 1tsp
Jeera/Cumin seeds : 2tsp
asafoetida : 1/8spoon
Curry Leaves : a few
Green Chilli : 1(slit longwise)
Coriander Leaves : a few

Dry Roast a handful of peanuts in kadai till sides are brown.Grind a little to give a crunchy powder.
Wash the masoor dal till the water is clear.
Boil the dal with 3 cups of water.
When it half boil add tamarind paste,jaggery,turmeric powder and salt.
When it fully boils add peanut.
In a another skillet,with a tsp of oil tamper with all those spices and fry a little and add to dal.

Make it spicy by adding extra green chilli.
Serve with Rice or roti and enjoy!!
