It may have originated from the royal kitchens, but this one’s a delight to make in the kitchen as well as relish. Toovar and chana dals are pressure cooked with lauki, tomatoes and turmeric and mixed well, before a tadka of garlic, ginger and jeera is added to it. Delicious!

This Dal Moghlai recipe is just so different, I love the use of so much of doodhi in this recipe and when tempered in ghee the taste of this dal was just awesome, I ate this with jeera rice and papad and relished my meal.
