14 mixed pulses gravy(reposted for the event)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,

Here is a recipe which is colorful and a very healthy for all the ages.
I prepare this at least once in ten days. It goes well with chapatis, hot rice or even just like that as an evening snack.

Here is the recipe,
Mixed pulses - 1 cup(soaked over night, washed )
(You can choose any pulses of your choice. The pulses I have used, you can see in the photo and with that I have added toor dal, yellow moong dal and chana dal)
Boil the pulses in a cooker just for one whistle with tej patta and haldi a pinch. Keep the same tej patta for masala.
Onion - 1 big, chopped
Tomato - 1 big or 2 medium, chopped or grated or even tomato puree will be fine
Tej patta -1 big
chilli powder - 2 tbsp
Dhania powder - 1 tbsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Haldi - a pinch
Hing - a pinch
(or if one likes ginger & garlic flavor, add 1 tbsp paste)
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste.
Fresh coriander to garnish.
Heat oil in a thick bottom kadai, add tej patta, onion. Let it cook till brown. Now add hing or ginger garlic paste. saute it for some time.
Add tomato and other dry powders. Cook till tomato starts leaving oil. Now add boiled pulses with little water. Mix it properly and boil it for 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh coriander.
Mixed pulses gravy is ready.
If you want to have is as a snack or side dish, let the water dry from the gravy.

This is going to participate in
