Here is the side that I prepare for the Ethiopian Injera which is the dosa style bread using Teff Flour.For the dhal I went with the yellow split pea dal recipe. Its a very simple recipe where we cook the channa dal in onion and ginger garlic paste with Turmeric powder.
- Yellow Split Peas / Channa Dal - 1/2 cup
- Oil - 1 tbsp
- Onion - 1 finely chopped
- Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tbsp
- Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
- Water - 4 cups
- Salt - 1/2 tsp
- Green Chilly - 1 finely chopped
- Red Bell Pepper - 2 tbsps chopped
Soak the dal in 1 cup of water for 1 hr or at least 30 minutes.
Heat the kadai and add oil.
Once the oil is hot add the chopped green chilly and the ginger garlic paste.
Cook till the raw smell goes and then add the chopped onions.
Cook till the onions are translucent.
Add the bells peppers and sauté for couple of minutes.
Now add the soaked dal, salt and turmeric and also the remaining 3 cups of water.
Bring it to boil and if required add more water.
Cook till the dal becomes soft and tender.
The dal should be thick so add water carefully.
