Trevti Dal ( Gujarati Recipe)

As the ‘trevti’ in the title suggests, this is a combination of three dals simmered with spices. The use of three dals imparts a special feel to this otherwise simple day-to-day dal, which goes very well with bajra rotla and lehsun ki chutney. As a variation, you can use urad dal instead of yellow moong dal.
