Eating out has become a fashion but we always compromise on quality. To add extra flavours, restaurants use more of oils and condiments. In this recipe I have tried to copy the most famous Punjabi Dal i.e. Dal Tadka. You can see this recipe on menus of all the restaurants and highway dhabas in Northern India. In this recipe I have made that extra kick tempering on Dal Fry. for dal fry recipe CLICK HERE

I wasn’t a cook at all but started cooking when I realised that I am married to a Foodie. While visiting new places and trying different food, I was always eager to ask questions regarding the preparation of the dishes. This curiosity has given me immense knowledge of cooking. I always say Stay Hungry Stay Curious and keep learning. This recipe I have learnt from highway dhabas while traveling within India. Hope you all are going to enjoy the healthier version of it
