OK Sushi Toor Dal

Ingredients

  • 1 cup toor dal, washed
  • 2.5 cups water
  • 2 long green chillies
  • 1 half-inch knob of ginger
  • 1 large, juicy proper tomato (never buy tomatoes that have no smell!)
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp hing
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 3/4 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp amchoor (mango powder)
  • 1 potato, diced to large chunks
  • ghee, for cooking
  • Coriander, for serving

Method

Blend the tomato, ginger and chilli to a paste. In your pressure cooker, heat ghee (about 1 tbsp), then add the cumin and hing. Heat until it darkens a few shades, then add the paste and turmeric and cook until very fragrant and the oils separate.

Add in the salt, toor dal, water and potato, and the water. Cook on a low pressure setting for 15 minutes. When cooked, stir in the amchoor and garam masala.

Serve sprinkled with chopped coriander.

Black Beans

Ingredients

  • 1 can black beans (I used Goya brand)
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 brown onion, chopped finely
  • 1 chilli, chopped finely
  • 150ml vegetable stock
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin (roast and grind your own if you have time)
  • Coriander
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • Salt to taste

Method

Put the beans (and can juice), onion, garlic, chilli and cumin into a saucepan with the stock. Bring to boil, then reduce heat and cook, stirring intermittently, until it thickens.

Take off the heat and stir in the lime juice, and the chopped coriander root/stems. Add salt to taste (you probably won’t need it).

Serve with coriander leaves roughly chopped on top.
