I feel a recipe is only a theme, which an intelligent cook can play each time with a variation. Madam Benoit

People always say the best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen , nor touched , nor heard but are felt in the heart . But for food it's all in it's looks, flavours and taste.

Dal Curry (Mulakoshyam)

People call this in different names in different places. I call it as ‘mulakoshyam’.
This is one of the easiest side dish we can prepare along with rice.

Recipe is below

Dal (Red Gram Dal/ Toor Dal) – 1 cup
Sliced Tomato – 1
Green chilies – 4 (each cut into half)
Turmeric powder – ½ teaspoon
Red Chili powder – 1 teaspoon
Curry leaves – a few
Salt to taste
Coconut Oil – 1 teaspoon

Cook Dal in some water.
Add sliced tomatoes, green chilies, turmeric powder, red chili powder and salt.
Pour some water and keep simmer.
Switch of the flame when tomatoes are cooked and the gravy becomes semi thick.
Add curry leaves. Sprinkle coconut oil. Mix well. Serve hot with rice.
