Mag ni dal is a dry preparation with basic guajarati masalas-it is a delectable everyday fare. I suggest you soak the dal before preparing the dish as it reduces the cooking time. You also need to remember that for this particular preparation, the dal should not be overcooked as the dal has to be separate and dry, and not soggy. That’s the secret of the success of this recipe!
