Lentils and Greens with Chana Dhal and Chukke ki Bhaji

This is a very tasty addition to my plan for healthy lunch boxes. It went perfect with some fried pomfret.

Soak channa dhal for some 15 mins. Longer is better but if you are short on time add a pinch of cooking soda.

Saute chopped onions and green chilies. Add some ginger garlic paste once the onions turn pink.

Add the channa dhal and cook till they are partially softened.
Now in goes some turmeric powder and a little red chilly powder.

Once mixed toss in some mutton. I use bones with marrow instead of meat. My kids like this marrow a lot more than meat.
The bones will change color and then you add in a good amount of water, salt and coriander powder.
Pressure cook for a whistle.

Open when its safe and add chopped chukke ki bhaji and two tomatoes.

Pressure again for a whistle.

Once the pressure has subsided, open and check the seasoning. Add salt if needed. Cook on high flame if you want to reduce it. But drinking it like a soup is the best way to enjoy it.

Perfect as a standalone dish or use it as an accompaniment for roti or rice.
