Kik (Yellow Lentils)


What you need:

  • 1 cup yellow lentils (chana dal), well rinsed
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 3 tbs canola oil
  • 1 round tsp garlic ginger paste, or to taste
  • Water
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper

What you do:

  • In a medium saucepan, cook lentils in 3 cups water over medium heat until water is fully absorbed, stirring frequently.
  • Meanwhile, sauté onions in oil in large saucepan over medium heat until golden.
  • Add pre-cooked lentils to onions and stir until well combined.
  • Add 2 cups water, bring to a boil and reduce heat to prevent burning.
  • Cook lentils until tender, adding more water as needed to maintain consistency of very thick soup.
  • When lentils are nearly tender, add garlic ginger paste and cook for a further 10 mins.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    I am a big fan of Chana Dal also.This is how we cook them in our family.

    After washing the chana Dal if you were to soak them for say 20 minutes they will cook sooner as you are not pressure cooking them.
