How to make Mulakushyam Recipe - A Mixed Vegetable Lentil Curry

  1. To begin making the Mulakushyam Recipe - A Mixed Vegetable Lentil Curry, first prepare the vegetables by peeling and cutting them. Wash the dal and keep aside.

  2. We will now cook everything a single pot, by either using a pressure cooker or using a sauce pan method. If using the sauce pan method, follow the same instructions as below and cook until the dal is soft and cooked through.

  3. Place the washed dal, the chopped vegetable, slit green chillies into the pressure cooker. Add the turmeric,salt and about 2 cups of water. Place the weight on and pressure cook until you hear two whistles. After 2 whistles, turn the heat to low and simmer for a couple of minutes and turn off the heat.

  4. Allow the pressure to release naturally. Once the pressure has released, add the curry leaves, the coconut oil, salt and pepper to taste. Stir and give the Mulakushyama brisk boil. Turn off the heat and transfer to a serving bowl.

  5. Serve the Mulakushyam along with Steamed Rice Elai Vadam and Pisarna Manga Recipe for a quick and wholesome weeknight dinner.
