Dals and Kadhis are side-dishes without which an Indian meal never seems complete! They balance a cereal-based meal in terms of nutrition and flavour, making it more satisfying in all respects. Be it a Sambhar or More Kuzhambu from south India or a Panchmel Dal or Pakoda Kadhi from the north, these are indispensable parts of a traditional meal! Dals are made of pulses or lentils while Kadhi is made of curds. Both rely on tempering for their exquisite flavour, and both categories can be enhanced by adding vegetables and spices.
