1
Soak 200 grams of chana dal overnight. Drain the water and grind it into a coarse paste.
2
Heat 2 tablespoons of mustard oil in a pan. Add 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds, 2 chopped green chillies, and 1 finely chopped onion. Sauté until the onion turns golden brown.
3
Add the chana dal paste to the pan and cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes.
4
Beat 4 eggs in a bowl and add them to the pan. Mix well and cook until the mixture thickens.
5
Transfer the mixture to a greased plate and let it cool. Once cooled, cut it into square pieces.
6
Heat oil in another pan and fry the lentil cakes until they turn golden brown. Remove and keep aside.
7
In the same oil, add 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds, 2 bay leaves, 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of red chilli powder, and 2 teaspoons of coriander powder. Sauté for a few seconds.
8
Add 2 chopped tomatoes and cook until they turn mushy. Add the fried lentil cakes and 1 cup of water. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
9
For the luchi, knead 200 grams of maida with water and a pinch of salt into a soft dough. Divide the dough into small balls and roll them out into thin circles.
10
Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the luchis until they puff up and turn golden brown.
11
Serve the Dimer Dhokkar Dalna hot with the freshly made luchis.
