To begin making the Dhaba Style Dal Fry Recipe | Mixed Dal Tadka, prep all the ingredients and keep them ready.
Soak all the dal’s together in a large bowl along with enough water for 6 to 8 hours.
The next step is to make the dal and for this we will cook it in a single pot in the pressure cooker.
Heat ghee in the pressure cooker over medium heat; add the onion, ginger and saute until the onions soften.
Add the spices – cinnamon, cloves and cardamom and saute for a few seconds. Stir in the tomatoes, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and garam masala powder.
Saute until the tomatoes turn mushy and soft. Add the salt, soaked dals and enough water such that there is at least 2 inches of water above the dals.
Cover the pressure cooker and cook the Dhaba Style Dal Fry for 4 to 5 whistles. After 4 to 5 whistles, turn the heat to low. Simmer the dal for at least 30 minutes and turn off the heat.
Allow the pressure to release naturally. Once the pressure has released, give the dal a good stir. Mash it gently to suit your taste.
Check the salt and adjust to suit your taste. Finally stir in the lemon juice and coriander leaves and turn off the heat.
Transfer the Dhaba Style Dal Fry to a serving bowl and serve hot.
