Dal is healthy, plain or spicy. But, this is one excellent dal you just cannot resist! comprising of four key varieties of pulses, cooked with onions and tomatoes, and perked up with a range of carefully chosen spices, masala dal is just the thing to have with hot rice and rotis.

A spicy combination of moong dal, madooo dal, urad dal and tovar dal. A nice flavor comes from the Kashmiri chillies.
