Tomato Pappu–Andhra Style

Dal called as “Pappu” in telugu is a vital part of every day meal of Andhra households. The preparation of pappu varies from region to region. There are two ways to make pappu: in olden days they used to temper the dal and then cook in slow cooker till done, it used to take long time and taste yum and other way is to pressure cook dal and tomato and then temper the dal. The consistency of dal can vary from slightly pourable or thick.
I prefer my dal the way it is made in Telenga thick dal and if you mix with rice and ghee it should form as a ball (in Telugu it is called 'muddalu') out of it. While posting this dal I went back to my memory lane of eating it at our Reddy Uncle’s place.
