The Dal Banjara recipe also popularly known as the Langar Wali dal is a simple dal to make in a single pot. This dal is packed with nutrition from the black urad and chana dal and when combined with spices like bay leaf and cinnamon makes it taste delicious too.
To make the dal, add all the ingredients into the pressure cooker, except the ingredients for the tadka
Add 2-1-/2 cups of water and pressure cook the dal for two to three whistles. After two whistles, turn the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes and turn off the heat
Once the pressure is released completely, open the cooker and your dal is ready. Check the salt and spices and adjust to suit your taste. Transfer the dal to a serving bowl
The next step is to make the tadka. Heat ghee in a small pan, add jeera and red chilies. Allow them to roast and crackle. Once done, turn off the heat and pour the seasoning over the dal and serve immediately with tandoori roti or even steamed rice
