Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Move Over Dal Tadka, Try Padma Lakshmi’s Dal Recipe With A Twist


Padma Lakshmi, the Indian-origin American model, author and television host, has carved a niche for herself on social media thanks to her quick and easy food recipes. The 50-year-old is often seen giving traditional Indian dishes a contemporary twist in her Instagram cooking videos. Padma is not afraid to step away from traditional recipes and tends to give a healthy spin to most of her creations. This time around she has recreated the traditional Indian lentil curry, dal, and came up with a vegan, garlic-free version.

Sharing the video, Padma Lakshmi said, “I love dal. You guys have seen me make a million kinds of dal. And what we are making today is not a traditional tadka dal but it still has many Indian ingredients. I added a couple of twists and removed ingredients such as curry leaves and garlic.”

Here’s The Full Recipe Method Of Dal With A Twist By Padma Lakshmi:

  • Boil three cups of masoor dal. Rinse the dal till the foam is gone.
  • Move the dal into a deep pot and soak it in about two inches of water.
  • Cook the lentils with a teaspoon of salt and one or two bay leaves. Bring it to a boil on a low flame and cook it for about 45 minutes.
  • For the tadka, add olive oil to a pan and once it is hot, add a teaspoon of cumin seeds.
  • When the cumin starts to colour and sizzle, add some chopped shallots.
  • Once the shallots are sauteed, add one-and-a-half teaspoons of ginger.
  • Next, add some shredded coconut to the tadka.
  • Follow this with a few chopped tomatoes and cook it for five minutes.
  • Add two teaspoons of sambar masala to the mix, followed by a pinch of salt.
  • Transfer this to the pot of lentils and mix it well together. When you do so, extract the bay leaves that were added initially. Cook it on a low flame for few minutes.
  • You can use a blender to make the texture of the dal smoother.
  • Now, add a handful of cilantro and a couple of dried Angeleno plums. This will give the dal a sweet and tarty flavour.
  • Transfer it to a serving dish, and add a tablespoon of lemon juice and garnish with some cilantro.

Sharing the video, she said, “Dal with Cumin and Dried Plums: All you aunties out there, please don’t clutch your thalis, this is a non-traditional riff, I’m sure you all are also sick of making the same tadka dal!!” Padma Lakshmi has authored two cookbooks- Easy Exotic and Tangy, Tart, Hot and Sweet. The recipe in the video can be found in the book, Tangy, Tart, Hot and Sweet, she said in the clip.
