A wholesome kadhi that uses cooked chana dal instead of besan. You will enjoy the texture of this Dal Kadhi, as well as the lingering mouthwatering flavour, brought about by simple spices.

Another special aspect of this kadhi is the addition of chopped capsicum, which imparts not just crunch but also a flavour and aroma that you will surely relish.
