Masoor Dal Ki Sabzi (split Red Lentil Curry)
Masoor dal ki sabzi is one of my favourite mummy ka khana (mother’s cooked food). The recipe is quite easy and can be a savior on Friday or Saturday evening when you have no vegetables in your refrigerator to cook. More than the taste, it is my memories of childhood which makes this curry special for me. There was a small shanty (Food joint) near our house selling authentic Bihari meals and snacks. The Chief (He was referred as ‘ Manager Saab’) cook was from Bihar and had a passion of cooking new recipes. So apart from his usual menu, at night he used to often try new recipes. This Masoor dal ki sabzi was also invented by him. My father was a close friend and hence he used to often give him a bowl of his delicacies to taste. My father used to bring it at home and we all used to enjoy it. Masoor dal ki sabzi was one recipe which we all liked and thus my father learnt the recipe from ‘Manager Saab’ and then handed over to my mother. Today I am sharing it with you all.
