Senagapappu Patoli


Chana dal 1/2 cup
Garlic pods 2
Red chillies 5-8
Mustard seeds 1tsp
Salt to taste
Oil 1 tbsp

Method of preparation:

Peel and slice one garlic pod.
Soak chana dal for 3-4 hours in few cups of water.
Make somewhat coarse paste with soaked chana dal, one garlic pod, red chillies and salt using minimum amount of water.

Heat oil in a pan on medium low, add mustard seeds, sliced garlic pod and above ground paste.

    I like the fact that almost all your recipes require only four to five ingredients.
