How to make Daal Pithi Recipe

To begin making the Daal Pithi recipe, knead the wheat flour with water and make a smooth dough. Make small balls (bit smaller than a size of cherry tomato) and roll the balls into thin round shapes with the help of rolling pin.

Fold from half to form a dumpling or a bowl shape dimsums.

Similarly, roll all the dough and keep them aside.

In a pressure cooker, add water and lentils. Bring them to a boil.

Once it is done, add cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and ginger garlic paste.

Let them boil for 10-15 minutes. Once they have boiled, add the prepared dough dumplings.

Put on the cooker lid. After 2 whistles, remove it from the hob and let it cool down.

While the ingredients in the cooker is getting cooled, prepare the tempering or the tadka. Heat a tadka pan and all the ingredients mentioned under ‘For tadka’.

Once done add the tadka to the cooked Lentil soup and garnish it with coriander leaves.
