Me and my dad have our own name for Tomato pappu. We call this yerra pappu(Red dal). We love to have this with hot rice, ghee, appadalu and Mango pickle...hmmm mouth watering...Here goes the recipe.


Toor dal(Kandhi pappu) 1 cup
Small Onion 1 (Chopped)
Tomatoes 3 (chopped)
Garlic pods 2
Small Lemon sized Tamarind
Turmeric 1/4 tbsp
Red Chilli Powder 1 tbsp
Green Chillies 2
Water 3 cups


Oil 3 tbsp
Mustard Seeds 1/4 tbsp
Cumin Seeds 1/4 tbsp
Garlic Pods 2
Few Curry leaves
Red Chilli 2


1. Pressure cook all the ingredients together. Add salt and mash them till they are soft.

2. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. When they start popping add cumin seeds, crushed garlic, red chilli and curry leaves. When Garlic becomes soft add few chopped onions and fry till they are golden brown. Then add the cooked dal into pan and mix well. Garnish with Cilantro.
