How to make the recipe

  1. Wash and pressure cook dal, ridge gourd, onions, green chilies, tomatoes,ginger garlic paste with 2 to 2 ½ cups of water till smooth. I usually cook directly in the cooker for 2 whistles
  2. Once the pressure is off, mash the dal to smooth, add tamarind pulp, red chili powder, turmeric and salt and bring it to a boil.Adjust the consistency by adding water if desired.
  3. Heat oil in a pan for tadka, add red chilies, mustard, and cumin when they begin to splutter, add garlic and curry leaves and fry till the curry leaves turn crisp. Add hing
  4. Pour this over the boiling dal. Off the heat and mix well. Serve beerakaya pappu with rice ghee and pickle.
