Masala Masoor Dal with Mixed Vegetables is like a Dal and Subzi combined into one tasty treat! Masoor Dal is combined with a traditional tempering, an assortment of spice powders, a horde of flavour enhancers like ginger and green chillies, and finally a cupful of mixed veggies.


The mixed veggies bring in a range of flavours and textures, while tomatoes and amchur powder contribute an exciting tang to this dish, which combines beautifully with Rotis as well as with Rice .
