Kohlrabi And Lentil Curry Recipe
Navalkol Dal Recipe

Kohlrabi is called knolkol or navalkol in Indian languages. I like the sound of knolkol so I will be using that name here on this page.

This recipe of knolkol with lentil does not use many spices. You can use whole or split Masoor(red lentil), split or whole mung(mung dal/ green gram dal)as both cook equally fast.

Choose tender knolkol. You will need to remove the skin of knolkol and use only the fleshy part.You may use the leaves too.

I am using split Masoor dal(red lentils) for this recipe. Knolkol and masoor, both have a similar cooking time.

You may also use whole masoor / red lentils instead of split ones.

If you use pressure cooker, you can reduce cooking time considerably.
