Toor Dal Fry (Split Pigeon Pea Fry)

Toor Dal Fry, you could probably make dal fry using a combination of dals as well. But i like only toor dal because it gives you a very unique taste, once you start eating this dal fry you never feel like stoping. When ever i cook dal fry i always end up cooking for 4 to 5 person though we are only 2 at home.
I think i should give some credit to my hubby as well, for giving me his secret recipe.. In oct 2011 i was not feeling well and i did not even feeling like eating anything for whole day. I wanted to eat something spicy but doctor had told me not to eat oily and spicy. My hubby made a deal with me in the afternoon saying that if you eat this plain khichdi or fruits, i will cook some special dinner for you ok. After hearing that i was excited and i ate fruits. Then for dinner he cooked food, but what? Dal fry, Rice, Roti, Potato and fenugreek seeds sabji. First i told him this is what you said special, i dont want to eat now. Then he told me you just eat one bite, and i did that. OMG!!! i never thought the food was so so so tasty, i finished the entire plate... From that day i started loving toor dal fry :)


Ingredient's
1/2cup toor dal
1 onion, 2green chillies, 1 tomato(finely chopped)
5 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
1tbsp ghee, 1tbsp oil
