Organize an outdoor lunch-dish up hot bajra rotis and serve with khandeshi dal-they make an amazing pair. Moong, masoor, toovar and urad dals are cooked with a spicy paste made of onions, dry coconut, chillies, pepper and more. A fiery tadka adds deeper flavor to the dish and brings out beautiful colors of the dal. Have fun!

5 dals, urad, masoor, chana, toovar and moong cooked and strongly spiced kashrmir red chillies and coconut to make a fantastic filling dal. Have it with a good paratha to make a filling and healthy meal.

A good replacement to regular dal.... The aroma of the masala being roasted is truly amazing and thats the essence of this recipe too.
