Cranberry Pappu (Daal)

This is an ultimate comfort food prepared in a simplest way. Tastes so good too!!


  • 1 cup Pigeon Peas (కంది పప్పు, Toor Dal)
  • ¼ cup Cranberries (fresh or frozen), chopped
  • ½ tsp Coriander – Cumin Powder
  • ½ tsp Red Chili Powder (or 2-3 Green Chilies)
  • A pinch of Turmeric Powder
  • Salt

For Seasoning/Tempering:

  • 1 tsp Oil
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • 2 or 3 whole red chilies, broken
  • A pinch of Asafetida


Wash and place the toor dal in a bowl. Add chopped cranberries + turmeric + coriander – cumin powder and mix well.

Cover and pressure – cook for 4 whistles. When all the pressure is gone, take the bowl out, add salt 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 + asafetida + red chilies and sauté well.

Pour this on top of the cooked dal and mix well. Enjoy this simple and yummy dal with rice or chapathis.
