1 cup orange masoor dal/red lentil (shown in picture)

1 small onion

2 small cloves garlic

1/2 inch piece of ginger

1 green chilli

salt and pepper

1/2 tsp of butter

1/2 tsp garam masala/all spice/sambhar powder (optional)

Wash the dal nicely. Pressure cook with lots of water, (3 times water approx.). One whistle is enough.

In a pan fry the cut onion on butter, until nicely cooked. Add garlic and ginger grated or pieces, green chilli and spice (garam masla or sambhar masala powder your choice). Add salt and pepper. Transfer everything to the blender, add the cooked dal and water (as required). Blend nicely.
