Lasooni Methi Dal

Had some methi leaves in the fridge and T Aunty was going on saying "halagi biduthe kane. .menthe soppu eenaadroo maadu" and today in-laws are out so decided to make Lasooni Methi dal. One of R's all time favorites (in-laws do not like the smell of garlic!)

You would need:
Methi leaves - chopped 1 cup
Dal ( I used masoor) - 1 cup cooked
Onion - 1 medium thinly sliced
Garlic - 5
Green Chillis - 5 sliced
Kadi patta - 5
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Ghee - 2 tsp
Salt

Method:
Heat 1 tsp Ghee in the Pan.
Add Jeera when it sputters add green chillis, kadi patta and onion and fry till onion becomes translucent.
Add chopped methi leaves and fry for 4 more mins on medium flame
Add the cooked Dal, salt and Garam Masala.
Mix, if the dal looks thick add 1/2 cup of water.
Bring to a boil.
In the mean time, heat 1 tsp ghee in a small pan and fry the garlic,
When the garlic turn golden brown add this to the boiling Dal and remove from flame.

Serve Hot with Rice or Roti.
