Pressure cooked chana dal has a great mouth feel and the yellowish brown dal pieces look good and have a great mouth feel. Mildly spiced, healthy and tasty.

Late last night I realised I was running low on vegetables for the next day's packed lunch. A random search for something involving chanadal led me to this recipe.With hardly any advance preparations the dish turned out a real saviour and is definitely a novel and healthy one. The precise measurements and mention of the specific cooking utensils are a great help.Tarla aunty, a big thanks to you and your team.
