Leek and Potato Dal

I bought Leek, without knowing what it is, then googled and found its identity. There were many recipe's for Leek and Potato Soup, Leek and Moong Dal. I wanted to add all these three, Leek, Potato,and Moong Dal in a single pot. It came out so well, with mild flavour's of each ingredient that went in. I served the Dal with Chapathi's, and it tasted so Good.


Leek, belongs to Onion Family. Leek has a little Onion taste and Scallion's taste. If you want to try some Pakora's, try with Leek, it turns out so Good. Proof is my Fried Tofu with Leek. Leek also reduces bad cholestrol. so try to put this wonder in your food often. Avacado's and Leek's, both have properties in them, Which helps to reduce the bad cholestrol, Reducing Bad Cholestrol is good for your Heart.

Ingredients for Leek Potato Dal:

1. Leek - 1
2. Potato - 1
3. Moong Dal - 1/4 cup
4. Dry Mango Powder / Amchur Powder - 1/4 tsp
5. Chaat Masala - 1/2 tsp (optional)


* Chop the Leek's Green Stem Part, as shown in the above Picture.

* Put all the Leek, Potato, Moong Dal in a wide-bottomed Pressure Cooker. Pour some water till they are totally immersed in.
