Lachko, is a Simple Mashed Toovar Dal. The only effort we make is to mash the dal. When made right this dal is delicious with Rice and Ghee. Traditionally Lachko should be served with Rice and Osaman (The next recipe @ Enveetu Kitchen)
1 Cup split Pigeon peas(tuvar dal), Soaked
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
4-5 tbsp puree ghee
- Pressure-cook the dal with the turmeric powder in two cups of water till the pressure is released three or four times (thee or four whistles).
- Remove the lid when pressure reduces completely. Stir in the salt and one tablespoon of ghee. Bring the dal to a boil, lower heat and simmer for five minutes. Stir briskly.
- Serve hot with the remaining ghee drizzled on top.
