Other necessary ingredients of this dish are lentils (preferably urad dal), onion, garlic, grated coconut, chilli powder, mustard seeds, jaggery and salt as per taste.

Another interesting recipe that is absolutely gluten-free is shami kebab made from mattar dal, green peas, spinach and mashed potato as the main ingredients. This is a very easy recipe as all the ingredients along with some spices and salt need to be mixed well in a mixing bowl. Make sure you roast the chana dal and grind it in a mixer. Also, the green peas need to get boiled and then ground. These kebabs taste superb with chutneys and sauces.
Dal tadka is made of lentils that need to be soaked for about 20 minutes. The other ingredients are garlic paste, turmeric, chilli powder, coriander leaves, chopped tomatoes, kasuri methi, dry mango powder, coriander powder, salt, chopped green chillies and whole garam masala. This tadka dal is rich in flavour but is healthy as it contains the goodness of lentils. The two most important things to remember while preparing dal tadka are- the dal should be boiled well in the pressure cooker and after adding the tempering you should close the lid of the pan so that the aroma gets absorbed in the dal.
