Scallion (Spring Onion) Lentil Curry is a super easy lentil curry to cook with so few ingredients. It is simple and easy on the stomach with no chilli involved at all - be it as a powder or as a vegetable. Ranya (my older daughter) loves this dal and has been her favorite since her toddler days. We had a good helper when we were living in Singapore - Auntie Gloria - who makes this lentil curry very well.
Ingredients (for 4)
1 tbsp. canola oil
1 cup orange lentils (masoor dal)
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 small tomato , cubed small
3 stalks spring onions, sliced small
3/4 tsp turmeric powder
Salt per your preference
Boil the orange lentils in pressure cooker for 3 minutes after the first whistle or in a pot for around 10 mins.
Heat the oil in a small pot and fry the ginger garlic paste for a few minutes.
This will then be followed by the spring onions.
Spring onions don't take a long time to cook, thus add in the turmeric powder and salt now.
Give it a few minutes and then add in the cooked dal with the cubed tomato.
Stir and let the flavors combine well.
Switch off the fire in 3-5 mins and serve warm garnished with extra spring onions and tomato cubes.
