How to make Dal Fara Recipe (Indian Stuffed Lentil Dumplings)

  1. To begin making the Dal Fara Recipe, soak the urad dal, chana dal and mutter dal for four to five hours.

  2. Make a coarsely ground yet fine paste of all dals in a mixer grinder. Now mix the dry masalas, garlic and chillies paste and salt as required. (Add salt only when you are all ready to fill the paste in the puri else it will become watery)

  3. Add red chilly powder according to your taste.

  4. Meanwhile prepare the dough by adding rice flour, water and salt. Make thick puri out of the dough and add the dal paste on one side of the puri and cover with the other side.

  5. Cook the far in a steamer for about 20 to 30 minutes.

  6. After 20 to 30 minutes, when it is cooked, switch off the stove and allow the fara to cool down.

  7. The next step is to temper the faras. Heat oil in a kadhai/wok and add jeera, curry leaves and hing. Let the jeera crackle and then add fara and stir for a bit.

  8. Once it is done, garnish with fresh coriander and it is ready to be served.

  9. Serve Dal Fara on its own with Tomato Garlic Chutney or as a side dish with your delicious North Indian meal.
