How to make Kashmiri Dal


1. Wash and soak dals for an hour. Drain, add to a deep pan with 3.5 cups water. Partially cover and cook at medium heat for 20 to 30 minutes or until the split peas are tender and slightly mushy. Add the salt and keep on low heat. (you can use 1 cup split peas if you do not have mung dal, or use 1 cup mung dal if you do not have split peas. the mung dal will cook faster)
2. Meanwhile, make the tempering. In a medium skillet, add oil and heat at medium.
3. Add onions and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until translucent.
4. In a grinder, or a blender, combine the bay leaf, ginger, fennel, cumin, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, black pepper, red pepper flakes, paprika, lemon juice into a smooth paste. Use a few tsp of water if needed.
5. Add the ginger spice mixture to the onions and mix well. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until the ginger and spice smell roasted. Stir frequently.
6. Add the tempering to the simmering dal. Mix well. Taste and adjust salt and spice.
7. Cook 5 minutes or longer to make thicker soup. Add water to thin to desired consistency. Serve hot garnished with cilantro and lemon juice, with cumin scented rice, quinoa or flatbread.
