Even if it is prepared using the same procedure adopted for individual dals, a mixture of dals always results in a different texture, aroma and flavour resulting from the synergy of the mix. When it is further augmented by kabuli chana and spinach, the experience gets richer. Cabbage and tomatoes give the dal crunch and tang, while a rich paste of cashews, coconut and spices gives the Mixed Dal with Spinach and Kabuli Chana an irresistible taste and texture too.
