Lemon Parupu(Dal)

My MIL keeps telling me about this dal which her MIL used to like a lot. I knew of this only after marriage. Later I came to know that there are still other variations to the normal dal we make.
Toor Dal - 1 cup
Green Chili - 1
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Urad Dal - 1 tsp
Gram Dal - 1 tsp
Lemon Juice - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil for garnishing

Pressure cook toor dal till its mushy.
Heat 2 tsp oil in a small pan, add mustard seeds and once they splutter; add urad dal, gram dal, and green chilies.
Add this to the toor dal along with salt, lemon jucie. Mix well and serve with rice. Tastes best with vathal kolambu

Bon Appetit!!
