Green gram dal curry (Hesaru bele saaru)

This one is a traditional recipe from karanataka. Green gram dal is healthy and easy to digest. I simply love this delicious curry with rice or chappathi. I have used a swirl of cream to garnish just for the picture. Authentically there is no cream used even for garnishing. The beauty of this recipe lies in original flavours of green gram dal and all the selected spices used. Here goes the recipe...

Green gram dal (uncooked)- 1 cup
Water - 2 cups
Onions - 1 nos
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Green chillies - 1 nos
Oil - 4 tbsp
Salt for taste

To grind:
Onions - 1 nos
Tomatoes - 2 nos
Chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Coriander powder - 1/4 tsp
Ginger 1" piece - 1 nos
Garlic minced - 2 tbsp

Pressure cook moong dal along with water till its done and keep aside. Grind all the ' To grind ' ingredients to smooth paste and keep aside. In a wok, heat oil and add finely chopped onions and fry till Golden brown. Add chilly powder and saute for a while. Add the ground paste and saute for 2 min. Add the cooked moong dal along with the water in which the dal was pressure cooked, green chilly slit lengthwise, salt for taste. Cook for 5 min or till its done. Serve hot with rice or chappathi.

Can roast and grind red chillies, coriander seeds if the powder is not preferred.
