Dal with Mixed Lentils
Nutrition of all the lentils in one dal.
    Preparation Method
  1. Wash and soak the grams together for half an hour. Pressure cook in 3 cups water along with turmeric powder to a soft consistency. Mix lightly and set aside.
  2. Grind all the ingredients of the paste using as little water as needed.
  3. Heat ghee in a thick bottomed pan. Add little cumin seeds, as soon as they crackle add the paste and continue to sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add dry mango powder, cooked gram, 1 cup warm water and salt and allow to simmer for 5-7 minutes.
  4. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve.

    I have been going through your recipes which I love and if I try to save them it saves only the method of cooking and not the ingredients. Can you please let me know why this is happening?? or is there another way to save.
    Thank you and hoping to hear from you.
