About

When we are at granny’s place during winter vacation, hot and spicy food used to top the menu card for the days. Hot soups, piping hot roti’s, spicy curries and much more. Among those curries this dal recipe is my all time favourite. Simple, creamy and delectable medley of dal with onion and ginger-garlic paste gives an aromatic flavour to the recipe........
