so let’s see how to make dal dhokli

First of all I have taken one cup Toor dal split pigeon peas,you have to wash it nicely and soak it in water for 1 hour, and your dal will swell up like this after soaking,

Boil Toor Dal

Now we will discard the soaking water and then transfer it to be a pressure cooker, and then we will add three cups of water to it meaning then ratio of dal to water is one ratio 3, and 1/4th tspo turmeric powder, and add salt to taste, now I am taking two tablespoon peanuts it in a steel bowl placed into the cooker to steam,

now I will cover the lid of the cooker and cook it for two or three whistles on medium to high flame, while dal cooks even the peanut will get steam so it will like killing two birds on one stone,

Once your dal is cooked and the steam in the cooker has settled, then lift the lid of the cooker and carefully remove the peanuts using tongs, we have to make the texture of the dal really smooth,

Blend Dal

Here I am using a hand blender nicely blend the dal using a hand blender, if you don’t have a hand blender then take a whisk and nicely whisk the dal until it your dal becomes really smooth in texture, now our dal is ready we have to temper it,

To make the consistency of your dal slightly thin, keep the dal a little bit thinner as it will still cook down quite a bit, and then we add dhokli to it it will further thicken up, once you have nicely stirred it then add the peanuts to it, one table spoon jaggery and I am adding one table spoon tamarind pulp, I am adding a little bit of jaggery and tamarind right now we can just it later,

You can even add lemon instead of tamarind, now turn the stove low and let the dal continue to cook, so friends our daal is cooking now,
