When we usually think of using chana dal in the menu, we make it into a thick, soupy dal, perked up with different flavours.

For a change, try this Dry Chana Dal recipe. It is simply awesome, with a soft and succulent texture and a peppy flavour marked by dominant notes of tomatoes and dried fenugreek leaves together with traditional flavour-givers like onion, ginger, garlic, green chillies etc.

Every mouthful is really bubbling with energy. You can serve this tasteful dish hot and fresh with rice or rotis .

You can also try other dal recipes like Dal Pinni and Dal Rasam .
