Potato Dal Curry

This used to be our "almost" everyday side dish for chapati during my growing up years. Mom used to make this atleast thrice a week to go with chapati and how I crave for this even now!!!! And the good news is that its very very simple to make and hassle free.

To pressure cook:
Toor Dal: 1/2 cup
Potato: 2 medium cubed
Onion: 1 medium sliced
Ginger: 1/2 inch diced
Green Chillies: 4 slit
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp
Salt: as required
Water: 2 cups

Put all these ingredients into a pressure cooker and cook for 5 whistles on high flame. Adjust salt and water if needed.

To temper:
Ghee: 1 tbsp (or use oil instead)
Mustard: 1/2 tsp
Shallots: 2 sliced
Curry leaves: 2 sprigs

Heat oil in a kadai and splutter mustard, small onions and curry leaves.
Pour over the cooked curry.
Serve warm with Chapatis.
