Moong Dhal Fry

2/3rd cup yellow moong dhal (lentils)
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp. minced ginger
4 large garlic cloves minced fine
2 large tomatoes, sliced
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 tsp. turmeric powder
Chopped coriander/cilantro
2 tsp. salt or to taste

Pre-cook the lentils using three cups of water. Heat oil in a saucepan and fry the cumin seeds for
a minute. Add the sliced onions, minced ginger, minced garlic, one sliced tomato and cook,
stirring constantly, for ten minutes on medium low heat. Stir in lentils and another three cups of
water and turmeric powder, heat till the mixture starts boiling, season with salt and turn off the
heat. Garnish with the second sliced tomato and chopped coriander/cilantro, immediately after
turning off the heat.

The trick is to add sliced tomatoes at the end, immediately before turning off the heat. This gives
the dhal a tart flavor.
