Trevti dal is a simple and quick Gujarati dal made with a combination of 3 lentils - chana dal (split bengal gram), toor dal (split pigeon peas) and moong dal (split yellow gram). It's very mildly spiced dal and is a no-onion no garlic dal. You can serve this dal along with roti/phulka or rice/jeera rice and any sabzi.
Usually when I make dal, I add lots of garlic and make a onion-tomato base with little spices. When I saw this dal in Tarla Dalal's space, I was intrigued by the recipe, as it had no garlic, onion or any other masala. I thought the dal will be bland, but the tempering added a nice flavor to the dal. I served the trevti dal with jeera rice, roti and potato cluster beans fry. Off to the recipe now.
Notes and Tips
- Adjust green chillies according to your spice preference.
- My chillies were mild, so I added red chilly powder in the tempering.
