Aptly flavoured with a dash of garlic and green chillies, this simple but tasty urad dal is a homely and satiating dish that you can make on any day.

The urad dal is cooked, combined with curds for a pleasant tang, perked up with some everyday flavour-givers, and boiled for a couple of minutes. That’s it! A tasty dish is ready to serve.

You can make this earlier, but before serving add a little water and re-heat, as it tends to thicken over time. This Basic Urad Dal recipe is loaded with nutrients.

Urad dal is rich in protein and B-vitamins, which are essential for energy metabolism, while curds bring in some more protein and high calcium to make your bones stronger.

Enjoy with hot ghee rice or rotis .
