The Best Dhal in Town

I remember going to my biras house some time ago while I was pregnant with Irfan. Her parents house to be exact. And her mother served us her home-made roti canai with dhal. I'm not a big fan of roti canai, but hers was just nicely done, crispy enough and not overly done. I loved her dhal as well so I asked for the recipe from my biras.

So sometime last week, I made dhal for our dinner, but I combined it with spicy fried beef and potato, and fried vege. My husband said it was nice, but he must eat it with some spicy gravy as it tasted a bit bland when eaten with rice. However, if you are not much of a spicy food lover, then I'm sure you would love this.

 Dhal Recipe

You'll need :

Kacang dhal
Beef (bone part)
Tamarind paste
Coconut milk
1-2 tablespoon of rempah kari daging

The steps are very simple :

1. First boil the dhal with the beef. Add salt. Boil until the beef and dhal are real soft. (This step could take a few hours).
2. When the dhal are soft I crushed them with fork so that the gravy will be thick. (The recipe didn't ask to do it but I did)
3. Then add pure coconut milk to the pot and continue boiling.
4. Throw in sliced tomato, carrots, brinjal and potato. Continue boiling until all the veges are soft and well-cooked.
5. In another wok, sautee sliced onions, garlic, ginger, cinnamon and the gang and rempah kari until fragrant.
6. Pour them into the boiling pot, mix well and turn off the heat.

Now your dhal is ready to be served!
