Dhabe Ki Dal –A healthy fusion of three dals

The word Dhaba brings to my mind the thought of resting ourselves on the wooden chairs and tables with the joy of viewing busy highway with speed moving trucks, buses and enjoying the tasty and spicy food that lingers on your fingers during a journey break. On one of our trips we came across this Dhaba on the Poona Bangalore highway which had amazing dal know as Dhabe Ki Dal. We liked the dal so much that we just asked on its preparation method and the server there was kind enough to narrate. I prepare it often as it has the combination of three dals packed with nutrition and also it goes well with both rice and chapattis.
So here comes from my Grand Veg Kitchen…..
    Dhabe Ki Dal

1/2 Cup - Sabut Urad dal /Kaali Dal (Black Gram)

1/2 Cup - Channa Dal (Split Bengal Gram)
1/2 Cup - Rajma (Red Kidney Beans)

1 Big Onion - Finely chopped
2 Medium sized Tomatoes - Finely chopped

2 Green Chilies - Finely chopped
5-6 Cloves of Garlic –Finely chopped

1 tsp - Cumin (Jeera) Powder
1 tsp - Red Chili Powder

1/8 th tsp - Turmeric
1 tsp - Butter

1 Tbsp - Kasuri Methi (Dried Fenugreek Leaves)
5-6 Stems of Coriander leaves finely chopped

2 Tbsp – Oil
Salt to taste

Soak the three dals together with enough water overnight or for 7-8 hrs.
Transfer the soaked dal along with water to a pressure cooker and add more water to cover the dal well in water .Cook on high for two whistles and on low flame for five minutes or till the dal is soft enough.

Heat oil in a thick bottomed kadai /pan and add finely chopped green chilies followed by finely chopped garlic and onions. Sauté till onions are pink in color.
Next add finely chopped tomatoes, turmeric and salt and mix well.
Cover and cook on low flame for two minutes or till the tomatoes are soft.
Next add cumin powder and red chili powder.
Add the cooked dal along with its water and mix well.
Check for salt and chili at this stage and add more salt and red chili powder if required as per your taste.Cook on low flame till it gains thick gravy like consistency.
For  garnish heat butter in a small pan and add hand crushed kasuri methi and chopped coriander leaves .Sauté for half a minute on low flame and add it to the cooked dal gravy.

Mix well and serve hot with plain rice, jeera rice or chapattis!!
