This irresistible Mixed Vegetable Dal is a chock-full of nutritious vegetables like kaddu, gavarfali and baingan along with a combination of toovar and masoor dals, which makes a wholesome meal in its own right. Instead of cooking the vegetables in oddles of oil, we have cooked them in water to reduce the use of oil, and to retain more of the nutrients. The amount of jaggery used in this recipe is also less as compared to other sweet dals.

Khatti Mithi Dal with Vegetables ( Low Calorie Healthy Cooking )
 on 28 Oct 14 12:17 PM
