Traditionally for Dal fry only two kinds of dals are used: chana dal (bengal gram / split chickpea) and toor dal (pigeon pea). However I like to add three more types of lentils in small quantities in this dal fry. The lentils I have used are chana dal, toor dal, moong dal (green gram), masoor dal (red lentil) and urud dal (black gram). A mixture of all these dals gives great flavor to dal fry.

  1. Take a cup full of mixed dals/lentils and wash thoroughly with water. Soak the mixed dals in 2 1/2 cup of water and keep it aside for some time.
  2. Put the soaked mixed dals in a pressure cooker and add turmeric and salt to taste. Pressure cook the mixed dal for 10 minutes till it gets nicely cooked.
  3. We will be adding tomato and onion based tadka to our mix dal fry. Finely chop onion, tomatoes and slices the green chilies. Grate some ginger and garlic as well. This tadka is similar to that of dal fry or dal tadka. Most of the Punjabi daals use onion and tomato based gravy for dal.
  4. For tadka, heat some oil in a pan. Once hot, add mustard seeds and cumin seeds and let them temper in hot oil. Once the seeds crackles add pinch of asafoetida, dry red chili, cinnamon stick, cloves, bay leaf and curry leaves. These spices give a great flavor to mixed dal fry.
  5. Add finely chopped onions to the spiced oil and cook till they become transparent. It should take around 3-4 minutes on low flame for onion to get cooked. Once the onions are done; add chopped tomato, turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder (dhaniya), garam masala powder, green chili and grated ginger and garlic and salt to taste. Optionally instead of grated ginger garlic you can add ginger garlic paste.
  6. Cook for another 4-5 minutes till all the flavors of spices blends with onion and tomato. Now add boiled mixed daals and some water and mix everything well. Punjabi style mixed dal fry is ready.

Serve the Punjabi style Mix dal fry with plain rice, jeera rice, roti, chappati, paratha etc.
