Easy though it is to make, the Basic Toovar Dal is the ultimate comfort food for many Indians! It hardly requires any effort and uses only common, everyday ingredients that you are sure to have at home.

All you need to do is pressure-cook the dal with onions and tomatoes, and cook it further for few minutes with an aromatic tempering of spices and seeds.

What you get after this simple procedure is a super tasty, homely and satiating dish, which combines well with any Indian bread or a bowl of hot rice !

You can also try other dal recipes like Dal Moghlai or Dal Pinni .
