The Dal tadka is a regular feature for most of us while eating out at a Punjabi restaurant.

However few of us realize that this dish can be prepared with ease in your very own kitchen at nearly one-fifth the price.

Made with split red lentils this creamy, rich and smooth dal is tempered with Punjabi spices and ghee. It makes the perfect accompaniment to Cooked Rice or Rotis .
