With its rich flavour and luscious texture, the Dal Pinni might as well qualify as festive cooking, but it is so satiating and earthy you will want to keep making it again and again! Here, a wholesome mix of dals and kabuli channa is smartly supported by veggies like cabbage and tomatoes that contribute an energetic crunch and tanginess to the dish.
Further, the Dal Pinni is flavoured with an aromatic paste of coconut, cashews and spices. This paste not only boosts the flavour but also gives the Dal Pinni a rich texture. Serve it hot with Rotis or rice to make a homely and satisfying meal.
