Tetor Dal / Bitter Gourd Lentil Soup

1 cup Moong Dal

1 medium tit korola/ 100gm Uchhe (Bitter Gourd)

½ inch Ginger

1 pinch mustard seeds

3-4 pieces lemon leaf

½  tsp Turmeric Powder

Oil 3 tsp mustard oil (you can use refined oil).

Salt as per test.


I use Moong Dal. Dry roast the dal and then boil the dal(in pressure cooker minimum 7-8 whistle ). Meanwhile cut the Bitter Gourd into thin round slices, season them with salt and turmeric.

In a wok heat oil . Add mustard seeds. Fry until the seeds change color (about 15 seconds).  Now add and  fry the Bitter Gourd slices for few minutes. Make and add a paste of the Ginger, next add the turmeric and cook for few more minutes. Add the cooked dal, water and mix them well. Adjust the taste with salt and add the lemon leaf. Boil it for few minutes and Drizzle some mustard oil on the top if you wish.
