My little boy loves roti canai.. and I am a fan of the Curry Dhal.. The Veggie Dhal.. I only like my roti canai goes with Dhall only..
Recently cooked the Dhal for self indulgence and for family.
The ingredients.. I am using Dhal (Mentioned Dhall India.. doesn’t matter what brand as long as it’s Dhal), I am using 250g (Half of that plastic.. These was quite a lot. You can use less than half for small family).
I am mixing with the green bean (Kacang hijau) which ready halved. I am using about 100g.. that will be about 1/4 of that beans (Half of half)..
Other important ingredients will be.. Cumin seeds (Jintan Putih), Fennel seeds (Jintan Manis), Halba and Mustard seeds (Biji Sawi).. all 1 teaspoon.. Not too much because it’s quite a strong flavour..
For the Veggie.. I am using potato (2 potato.. diced) and carrots (Using baby carrots about 10 and just cut into small size.. If you use big carrot, just use 1 and diced).. 1 onion (Not in the photo… diced).
You can add the ‘snake gourd’ into the recipe too.. But I cannot find it here so just using what I have..
These are the Snake gourds (Source).. I hate to Google for the pic actually.. coz I am sure other ‘snake’ will come out.. ~.~
If you have that.. just diced..
Other ingredients needed.. Salt, water (Just covering the ingredients surface.. add more during the cooking process if it drying out) and 1 tablespoon oil to saute the spices (Get ready a small sauce pan).
Now.. Cooking time..
Use a pot to cook. Heat fire (Slow heat) and place your pot. Put in the Dhall, green bean, all the veggies and add water just covering the ingredients surface (You can add water during the cooking process if it drying out).
Wait until cooked. It took about 40 minutes to wait for the Dhal to cooked. Don’t forget to stir sometimes. I stir like every 5 minutes to make sure everything cooked evenly. You can taste the dhal too to know if it cooked.
