Vatali Daal

As we know today is Anant chaturdashi.  Everyone will do the Visarjana of 'Ganpati' (immersion of idol).  It is very touchy moment , we are saying Bye to him. "Ganpati bappa Morya, Pudhachya varshi lavkar ya" (come soon next year.) And we will pass full year in next year's plan.  It's a tradition to give curd, milk and Poha mixture with Ganpati bappa for his journey:).  Like other sweet Prasad like modak & khirapat on Visarjana Day  we offer one savory item , 'Vatali Dal' to God.   It is made from Chana daal. After plenty of sweet Prasad, it tastes more yummy.


Chana Dal – 2 cups

Green chilies - 4-5

Ginger - 1 inch

Cumin seeds - 1/2 teaspoon

Oil - 2 tablespoon

Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon

Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Asafetida - 1/4 teaspoon

Curry leaves - 7-8

Lemon juice - 2 tablespoon

Sugar - 2 teaspoon

Salt as per taste

Chopped coriander leaves & grated coconut for garnishing.


Wash and soak chana dal for 4-5 hours. Then drain out extra water. Coarsely grind it with green chilies and ginger. In a non-stick kadai heat oil. Add mustard and cumin seeds. When it starts spluttering, add turmeric powder, asafetida and curry leaves. Then add grounded dal, salt and sugar and mix well. Cook it till it completely becomes dry. Saute it in between so that it will not stick to the bottom. Now add lemon juice and mix well. Turn off the flame. Garnish it with coconut and coriander and offer as a Prasad to God.

It is slightly different from Kairichi dal.
