Masoor Dal / Red Split Lentils Recipe

Indian-inspired lentils your whole family would love it. Once the dal and rice are at the Required consistency, it's ready to eat or freeze. You have to Make sure the mixture is completely cool before freezing. I use freezer ice trays and small individual glass bowls with lids.

For Serving Of Six ( Ingredients )

  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 4 1/4 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup red lentil (Masoor Dal), Rinsed
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2teaspoon ground black pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes (optional)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon peeled, finely grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely grated


  1. Rinse rice in a few reversals of water and transfer to a container. Cover with water and let soak at room temperature, for 15 minutes to 1 hour. After then Drain.
  2. Merge 3 cups water with red lentils in a large pot on medium heat. Bring to a simmer, skimming any scum that assembles on the surface. Mix( stir ) in onion, cumin, coriander, salt, black pepper, cayenne, and turmeric. Slow down the heat to low and simmer, moderately covered, until lentils are tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. Stir or mix tomatoes, peas, and salt into the pot. Continue cooking, stirring periodically, until lentils are soft, for about 30 more minutes.
  4. Merge drained rice with the remaining 1 1/2 cup water in another pot; bring to a boil. Let the heat to very low and simmer, cover it with a tight-fitting lid, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed about 20 minutes.
  5. Heat oil in a small skillet over intermediate heat. Do addition of mushrooms, ginger, and garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour over lentils; stir to distribute. Cook lentils until flavors merge, for about 5 minutes. Serve lentils with rice.
