Mizo Dhal #Mizocuisine

For this month's Sshhh.... secretly cooking , we are cooking from Mizoram . I was paired with  Sujata Shukla who blogs at Pepper on Pizza . She gave me onion and tomato as my secret ingredients. Do visit her site for more interesting recipes.....

 I decided to make this mizo dhal . Mizoram cuisine consists of fewer vegetarian options. In this mizo dhal too they will be adding whole boiled eggs. I skipped adding the eggs, the recipe is even called as Dal and eggs . I referred this recipe from here and here.


Moong Dhal - 1/4 cup
Toor Dhal - 1/4 cup
Afar Dal (Urad Dal ) - 1/4 cup
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Garlic crushed - 2 pods
Green chillies - 2 nos
Mustard oil - 1 tbs
Salt to taste
Hard boiled Egg - 4 ( If adding )


Peel and Chop the onion. Puree the de-skinned tomato .

Crush garlic and green chillies.

Wash and soak the three dhal together . Pressure cook with turmeric  and enough water.

Heat the oil in a shallow pan , fry onion and tomato paste.

Add the crushed garlic and green chilli , give a quick stir.

Add the whole hard boiled eggs in the pan if adding and fry till onion turns brown . I didn't add egg.

Add half cup of water  and let it boil for ten minutes.

Add in the cooked dhal and required salt.

Mizo Dhal is ready to serve.

Serve hot with steamed rice.
