Lauki Chana Daal

INGREDIENTS
· 2 cups split Bengal gram (chana daal)
· ½ kg bottle gourd (lauki), cut into cubes
· 4-5 cloves garlic, grated
· 1 inch piece ginger, grated
· 1 large onion, finely chopped
· 1 green chilli, seeded and sliced
· Salt to taste
· ¼ tsp turmeric powder
· 2-3 tbsp ghee
· 1tsp cumin seeds
· A pinch asafoetida
· 2 tomatoes, finely chopped
· ½ tsp red chilli powder
· Fresh coriander


METHOD
Place daal, garlic, ginger, onion, green chilli, bottle gourd, salt and turmeric powder in a pressure cooker. Add two to three cups water, cover and pressure cook for seven to eight whistles. Remove from heat and let it stand, uncovered. To make tempering (tarka), heat ghee in a non-stick pan. Add cumin seeds, asafoetida and let seeds crackle. Add tomatoes and cook till they are pulpy then add red chilli powder, switch off the heat and mix well. When the pressure reduces, remove lid off pressure cooker and mash gram mixture. Transfer cooked gram in a serving dish and pour tempering on top. Garnish with coriander sprigs.
