There is hardly anyplace in India where people won’t recognize this lentil curry ,Yellow Dal. A staple vegetarian dish in every Indian household, dal chawal have become synonymous with home-made food, relished by the young & old in the same contentment.

This Yellow DalĀ is divergent from place to place ,because the real flavor lies in the tadka that is put into this after boiling the lentils properly..

And if my lunch plate has rice, alo-bharta and moong-dal ,i happily dance with joy. Before i start my plate ,i add mango pickle to this spread & enjoy that simple soul food.

I am sharing a Dal recipe today which goes well with Rice or Roti . It’s truly flavorsome .
