I like to include different dals like Toovar,Moong, Masoor.. sometimes even Urad alternately in my day-today meals. One of my favourite dals is Masoor dal (Red lentils). This beautiful looking orange red dal is commonly used in North Indian cuisine. You can make out masoor dal being cooked in any household. It gives out a typical rich aroma..unique only to Masoor dal. This dal is easier to cook than the other dals. Soak it for ½ an hour and it gets cooked within 10-15 minutes.Masoor dal cooked in combination with tomatoes increases its flavour and is absolutely irresistible.
My Lunch yesterday- Masoor Dal curry, Stuffed Gilka with Rotis
For Masoor dal curry you need:
1 cup Masoor dal soaked in water for ½ an hour
