Dal fry is literally every where! you will find it on every restaurant menu, in most buffets, in wedding spreads, parties and in day-to-day meals. That is how versatile and common this north indian recipe is. Devoid of too many spices, this dal tastes very natural though not bland or raw. In short, it tastes just perfect. However, most people are so engrossed in the final product that they do not even realise that it is comprised of an uncommon combination of dals – chana dal and masoor dal.
