Main Ingredients

1 cup RK Masoor Gota, soaked for 30 minutes

1 onion, finely chopped

2 tomatoes, pureed

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1-inch piece of ginger, grated

1 green chili, finely chopped

1 teaspoon RK Cumin Seeds

1 teaspoon RK Turmeric Powder

1 teaspoon RK Coriander Powder

1/2 teaspoon RK Red Chili Powder (adjust to taste)

1/2 teaspoon RK Garam Masala

RK Salt to taste

Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)

Oil for cooking


1. Heat oil in a large pan or pressure cooker. Add cumin seeds and let them splutter.

2. Add chopped onions and sauté until golden brown.

3. Add minced garlic, grated ginger, and green chili. Sauté for a minute until fragrant.

4. Add the tomato puree and cook until the oil separates from the mixture.

5. Rinse and drain the soaked masoor gota. Add it to the pan and mix well with the tomato-onion mixture.

6. Add turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chili powder, and salt. Stir to coat the lentils with the spices.

7. Add water, enough to cover the lentils. If using a pressure cooker, close the lid and cook for about 3 whistles. If using a pan, cover and simmer until the lentils are cooked and tender (approximately 20-25 minutes), stirring occasionally.

8. Once the lentils are cooked, sprinkle garam masala and garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve hot with steamed rice, roti, or naan.
