Dal – Vegetable Curry


By the end of the week i’ll be having too little of all the veggies in my fridge. Where I can’t use any single vegetable to make any dish. So Dal-vegetable curry is the one dish I make at least  once a week. This is one way to finish off all the veggies and go shopping for fresh vegetables.

I usually add split moong dal with veggies, reason being its cooks faster and my toddler can digest well. Once in a while I use Channa dal for this dish. Dal- veggi curry with wheat-flour Chapathi is nutritious and complete satisfying meal.

So here is the recipe.

  • Veggies I used are carrot, capsicum/green bell pepper,zucchini, green beans, tomato, onion,peas and potato(All together it was about 2 cups of veggies).
  • I used 1 cup of split moong dal with this veggies.


Spices I used

Red chilli powder  1tsp

Curry powder      1tsp

Turmeric            1/2 tsp

Tamarind           1/2 tsp

Jaggery             1tsp.

* Can add garam masal instead of curry powder. I usually add jaggery where ever I use Tamarind it balances the tangyness .


Also need 2 tsp of oil and mustard seed for seasoning.


  • Heat oil on medium heat, when hot add mustard seed .
  • Once mustard starts to pop add all the veggies. Wash moongdal in water and add this to veggies.
  • Add little salt mix well cover and cook untill veggies are half done.
  • Now add all the spices mix well add enough water to get medium consistancy.
  • Cover and cook for another 10min or untill veggies and dal is cooked .
  • Adjust salt per taste.


Now its ready enjoy ! Have a nice weekend Everyone…

    Hi Madhu,

    I happened to see your blog accidentally and i really love it, am from Bangalore though originally from Kerala.

    I love Karnataka food. All your recipes look yum and the photos are very tempting……

    I would appreciate if u can post authentic recipe for the bisibele bath powder, I know you need a special spice called marathi moggu.

    Can you use lemon juice instead or do without no sourness?

  18. Justyna Says:

    I wanted to compose you a very small observation just to say thanks as before on your nice ideas you have provided on this website. It was quite open-handed with people like you to present freely just what most people would have supplied as an e book to generate some dough for themselves, principally given that you could possibly have done it in case you wanted. The guidelines as well worked as a easy way to understand that some people have the same eagerness just like my very own to figure out a whole lot more with respect to this issue. I am sure there are a lot more pleasurable occasions up front for those who scan through your blog post.

    The next time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I do know it was my choice to learn, however I truly thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you would repair for those who werent too busy in search of attention.
