Aloo Masoor dal or Potato red lentil stew is a hearty one pot dish that is easy enough to make for a busy weeknight dinner.
For the second day of this week’s blogging marathon, I have a very interesting gravy curry/ stew. Today’s everyday dish, Aloo Masoor dal or Potato Lentil Stew is very easy to make and has an unusual combination of lentils and potatoes.
Aloo Masoor Dal
Aloo masoor dal has an interesting gravy. As the name suggests red lentils are cooked till very smooth and used as the gravy. Sounds very similar to South Indian sambar with lentils and veggies but quite different because there are no spices used. Lemon juice at the very end gives the required tang and makes the whole dish pop.
One pot dish:
I love one pot wonders like this one. Protein, carbohydrates and veggie in the same dish – I don’t have to worry about making another side dish. This aloo masoor dal fits the bill perfectly. Red lentils cook in no time and so this is a great wholesome dish to make on a weeknight.
Perfect to eat as is or served with rice or roti – this is a great dish that the whole family will love.
