Capsicum Dal

This is like normal dal but adding crunchy capsicum gives twist to the dal. When you are bored with your normal dal recipe, give this one a try. It goes very well with chapati or steamed rice or jeera pulao. The consistency is upto you but personally i like it a bit thick.
Onion - 1 cubed
Green Capsicum - 1/2 cubed
Tomato - 1 small cubed
Moong dal - 1 cup
Jeera - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tbsp
Curry leaves - few
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt to taste

Pressure cook the moong dal and mash it well.
Heat oil in a pan and splutter the mustard seeds and Jeera. Add the chopped onion & Curry leaves and saute till it turns brown.
Then add chopped capsicum and saute for few mins. Then add the chopped tomatoes and cook until it turns mushy.
Then add turmeric powder and mashed moong dal and cook till it starts to bubble.
Serve with chapati or rice or any plain pulao.
