Dal is one of the main sources of proteins for vegetarians, and hence a part of the staple diet of most indians. This wholesome, non-spicy recipe pools in the goodness of three varieties of dal—moong, masoor and urad. While that makes it special for the health-watcher, the highlight for the food-lover is the fact that it is tempered in butter and not in ghee. That imparts a special, virgin taste to the dish, making it truly irresistible. Feast on hot rice with mixed dal!
