Nourishing and tasty, the Basic Chana Dal is a wonderful accompaniment to rice and Indian breads like rotis or phulkas.

It tastes really awesome thanks to the apt combination of spices and dried fenugreek leaves. Amchur powder, though used in a small quantity, gives a pleasant tang to the dal.

It is important to soak this dal in hot water as mentioned in the recipe, to ensure easy and complete cooking. Enjoy it hot and fresh!
