What is Dal Sunehri?

Dal sunehri is an Indian lentils stew; which is the combination of two lentils (split black gram & split bengal gram), and seasoned with spices. Sunehri means golden in hindi; when this lentils stew is ready, it comes out beautiful golden in color. So I decided to name it, ‘Dal Sunehri’. This creamy, aromatic, and spicy lentils stew is a perfect side dish for lunch/dinner. Dal sunehri goes very well with flatbreads or steamed rice.

Let’s learn to make Dal Sunehri in easy to understand quick steps.

  • Heat a pressure cooker. Add black gram, and split black gram, salt, tomato, asafoetida along with 4 cups of water. Cover the lid, and pressure cook for 6 whistles. Let it cook on on low heat for about 10 minutes. When the cooker is cooled off, open it.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard, and cumin seeds to it. When they start to splutter, add onion paste along with ginger-garlic paste. Saute for about 3-4 minutes or till it turns pink.
  • Add chili powder, coriander powder, and garam masala powder along with 1/4 cup of water. Let the spices cook with water for few minutes. Add kasuri methi and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Now add boiled dal, and mix well. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and again mix well. Remove from heat.
  • Serve hot with any of your favorite bread or or steamed rice. Enjoy!
