Here, a wholesome combo of five dals is flavoured with a special masala water and whole spices as well! Not only the flavours of the spices, but the flavours of the assorted dals are also discernable in this delightful dish. Dissolving the spice powders in water before sautéing them ensures that they get uniformly mixed, and also gives a nice, strong aroma to the dish. The Panchmel Dal also gets a nice tangy twist from amchur powder and tamarind pulp, which makes it a nice, tongue-tickling treat!
