6.8 / 10 (
• 1/2 cup Toovar Dal

• 1/2 cup Urad Dal
• 1 cup Egg Plant (chopped)

How to make Dhansak:
Mix toovar dal, moong dal and urad dal, and wash them.
Heat some water in a pressure cooker and add the dals, broccoli and carrots in it.
After 2 whistles, turn off the flame. Mix the dals and vegetables properly.
Now heat the oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds to splutter, and then add green chillies and onions. Fry till they turn golden brown.
Add eggplant and tomatoes, and let the vegetables cook for 5-10 minutes.
Add cooked dals, salt and garam masala. Let the dish cook for another 15 minutes.
This is not the authentic "Indian" Dhansak, with Broccoli. India has no Broccoli. . . !!
I also think some tender methi leaves will liven up the recipe. Submitted by: Shujit
