We can say, it's the south indian Hummus, although i haven't tried it with Pita bread ;-)
Toor daal - 1 cup
Black peppercorn - 1/2 spoon (increase if you want it really spicy)
Salt to taste
Hing - a pinch
Heat little oil and add the toor dal, pepper and hing and fry till the daal is golden brown.
Remove it from the stove and add some water and let it sit for 10 minutes. Add salt to taste and grind it.
My fil gave me this tip to soak it in water for few minutes before grinding to get a creamier texture.
I am sending this to Ramya's Chutney Mania.
