This koshimbir/lentil side is a must during any festival occasions, a must when we made puran poli. With little variations, this dish is famous across Maharashtra and Northern Karnataka. The lentils are soaked for 3 – 4 hours and then coarsely ground and combined with other ingredients as mentioned below. I understand some people do not like the smell of the black salt, so you can skip it although it is a good digestive aid. Very nutritious, this dish does not have any oil or tempering and is a good option if you are on a self regulated diet plan :-) !
2 cups chana dal/split gram/yellow split peas, soaked
1 small green chili (optional)
1/2 cup onions, thinly sliced
1 tomato, sliced
1 lemon juice
1/2 pinch of black salt
salt to taste
cilantro for garnish
Note:Could replace lemon juice with 1 cup of yogurt
If needed, Add more veggies like tomato, cucumber, radish, carrots
1. Soak the gram dal/lentils for 3 – 4 hours.
2. Coarsely grind the green chili and soaked dal together.
3. In a bowl combine together sliced onions, tomatoes, ground dal, juice, black salt and salt.
4. Add other veggies if required
Preparation Time: 10 mins
Serves: 4 - 8
