Number of serving: 2
3 fistfuls of Toor Dal (Kandi Pappu)

1 cup of honeydew melon peeled and cut into pieces (approx.)

1 or 2 Tomatoes, chopped into pieces

A few Curry Leaves

A handful of Cilantro

½ teaspoon Mustard Seeds

¼ teaspoon Cumin Seeds

1 teaspoon Oil

A pinch of Turmeric

A pinch of Asafetida (Inguva, Hing)

1 teaspoon Sambhar Powder

1 teaspoon Tamarind Pulp (or as required)

1 teaspoon Sugar

1 teaspoon Chili Powder



  • Pressure cook toor dal until it's done. Keep aside.
  • In a bowl heat the oil and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add cumin seeds and fry for 2 seconds.
  • Then add curry leaves + tomatoes + melon pieces + turmeric + sambhar powder + asafetida to the bowl and stir well.
  • Add the chili powder too if using. Add a small amount of water just to soak the melon pieces, cover and leave the bowl for some time on medium flame.
  • After some time check if the melon pieces are soft (don't let it turn too soft and mushy).
  • If they are soft, add the cooked dal along with tamarind pulp and sugar and stir well.
  • Add some more water and let the sambhar cook for some time more until it comes to a boiling point. Add salt and cilantro and mix well.
