  1. Rightly said Jayashree, this dish is loved by one and all. You have brought a smile by posting my favourite dish on New Year.

  2. Hi Jayashree,
    Good morning dear.
    This is one of the most religiously cooked dal in our house and preparation is very same like you shared, it’s just we serve with rice that’s why Dal is different in appearance as free flowing. And we add kokum or kokum flower or tamarind pulp and which makes this very very tasry.. its like first boling with sufficient water, then blending, add water as per need, add kokum, coriander, curey leaves, boil again and temper with cumin and mustard seeds..
