A delightful combination of five dals, simmered with not just whole spices but a bouquet of aromatic spice powders too! The Panch Ratani Dal also gets the right amount of tang from curds and tomatoes, which complements the spiciness very well. Rich in folic acid and fibre, this flavourful dal is also good for your heart.

Curd gives a twist to the taste. It is not spiccy yet tasty. The spices adds a great flavour to the dal.
