Masoor Rassa

Some people consider Masoor (brown Lentil) as a substitute for non-veg. In Shravan month many people do not eat non-veg food, so they prepare same gravy with masoor. I tried this recipe from one of the recipe special magazine. It came out very nicely.

Masoor Sprouts - 1 cup
Chopped Onion - 2 small
Potato - 1 medium
Garlic Paste - 1 tea spoon
Ginger paste - 1/2 tea spoon
Grated Coconut - 5-6 table spoon
Tamerind pulp - 1 tea spoon
Jaggery - 1 tea spoon
Chili powder - 1 tea spoon
Malwani masala/ Garam masala - 1 tea spoon
Salt to taste

For Tempering
Oil - 1 table spoon
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 tea spoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tea spoon

Heat oil in a kadai, add mustard seeds, when they starts spluttering add turmeric powder. Then add chopped onion, Saute it till it gets transparent. Peel and make big cubes of potato. Add cubed potatoes in kadai and let it cook with lid. Remove the lid. Now add Ginger and Garlic Paste. Saute it neatly. Then add grated coconut, chili powder, malwani masala ( if you don't get it you can replace it with Garam masala), saute it. Now add masoor sprouts, tamarind pulp, jaggery and salt mix it properly. Add 1/2 cup of water and let it cook for 5-6 minutes with lid. When it cooked properly garnish it with Coriander leaves.

I want to contribute this recipe for Ashwini's "Lentil Mela"
