Trio Dal

Nice name eh :) Didn't know what else to name this fundu combination of 3 different dals to create a wonderful dish. My ma calls it tridali dal if u can pronounce that right :)

  • 1 cup Moong Dal (or you can use khichdi dal)
  • 3/4 cup Chana Dal
  • 1/3 cup Urid Dal
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ginger-garlic-green chilly (a.k.a GGG) paste
  • a few curry leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon haldi
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon jeera
  • a pinch of heeng
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilly powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Finely chopped coriander for garnish.


  1. Wash and pressure cook the 3 dals together till cooked, about 2-3 whistles.
  2. Once the dals are cooked, add chopped onions, tomatoes, GGG paste, curry leaves, salt, red chilly powder and haldi.
  3. Add a little water if needed and pressure cook again for 1-2 whitsles.
  4. When done, mash it up a li'l with the hand blender. Add a li'l boiled water if needed.
  5. In a small kadai heat oil, add heeng and jeera and fry. Add this tadka over the dal. Mix well.
  6. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.

Tip: You can make this dish completely oil free by adding the jeera and heeng in step 2.

Happy Cooking!!!
