You might have tried preparing chana dal and cucumber in the form of gravies, but this unique dry subzi made with the same combo is unbelievably tasty and sure to delight you with its crispy texture.


Cooked simply with minimal spices, this Jain -friendly Cucumber Chana Dal is nevertheless very tasty, mainly because of the consistency of the chana dal, which is cooked to a stage where it is soft but still retains a bit of its crunch.


This complements the juicy softness of cucumber well. Take care not to overcook the dal as that will make the dish lumpy and mushy.
