Flax Flavored Tomato Pappu (Daal)

A little healthy flavor added to the regular tomato pappu that made it taste more yummy and healthy.

  • 1 cup split Pigeon Peas (Kandi Pappu, Toor Dal)
  • 1 tsp ground Flax powder
  • 1 tsp Coriander-Cumin Powder (Dhania-Jeera powder)
  • 1 tsp grated Coconut (fresh or dry)
  • 1 med. Tomato, chopped
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • Few Cilantro Leaves
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • Few broken Red Chilies
  • ½ tsp Red Chili powder
  • Salt


Wash toor dal well and place in a bowl. To this add flax powder + coriander-cumin powder + coconut + chili powder + tomato + cilantro and mix well.

Pour some water and pressure-cook the above mixture for 3 whistles. When it’s done, take the pappu out of the cooker after all the pressure is gone.

Add salt to pappu and mix well with a spoon. Keep aside.

In a small pan, heat oil and add mustard seeds. When they pop, add cumin seeds + curry leaves + red chilies and sauté well.

Add this to the cooked pappu and mix well. Enjoy this yummy pappu with rice or chapathis.

I am sending this delicious pappu to "Cooking with Seeds - Flax Seeds" hosted by
