Mithi ghani dahl

Ingredients :

1 1/4 cup whole mung beans (3 1/2 cups cooked)

3 1/2 tablespoons chickpea flour (besan), sifted

1 cup coconut milk

1/2 cup water

2 cups plain yogurt, whisked

1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt

1 teaspoon turmeric

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seeds

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne, to taste

2 tablespoons ghee, butter or oil

1 1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds

3 to 4 green chilies, seeded and finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon asafetida

1 inch piece cinnamon stick

generous handful of dried curry leaves

1/4 cup fresh parsley or cilantro

fresh cracked black pepper to taste

Method :

Rinse the mung beans and soak in several inches of water for 6 hours or overnight. Drain and rinse, then transfer to a large saucepan and cover with several inches of fresh water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover. and simmer for 40 to 50 minutes or until the beans are tender but not falling apart. Drain and set aside.

Place the chickpea flour in a large bowl and slowly whisk in half of the coconut milk. Whisk in the remaining coconut milk, water, yogurt, salt, turmeric, ground coriander, fenugreek seeds, chili powder, paprika and cayenne.

Pour this mixture into a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, place over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Stir and simmer until the mixture begins to thicken. Add the cooked mung beans to the pan and continue to simmer for another 10 minutes, stirring often. Add more water if necessary to achieve your desired consistency.

Heat the ghee, butter or oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. When hot, toss in the cumin seeds, green chilies, asafetida, cinnamon stick and curry leaves, and stir for a minute or two or until the cumin seeds darken a few shades. Pour into the beans, quickly stir once, and cover. Let sit for 5 minutes. Discard the cinnamon stick, stir in most of the fresh parsley or cilantro (reserving some for garnish).

Serve hot or warm garnished with the remaining parsley or cilantro, with hot fresh cooked buttered rice and/or Indian flatbreads on the side.
