This dal serves a dual purpose it's extremely good for people with heart ailments along with diabetes as methi helps to control blood sugar levels. I have added ginger and garlic to this dal which gives the perfect spice effect and helps to avoid the need of oil-laden pickles. Serve hot with Stuffed Soya Parathas.

Simple dal made nutritious by adding methi leaves and making it using very little oil...I make this dal quite often and serve it with cooked brown rice or red rice....too good...
