A dal with a lip-smacking flavour that lingers on your taste buds, the Hare Lehsun ki Toovar Dal would be a good dish to prepare when green garlic is in season.

Green garlic has a milder flavour than regular dried garlic, and it perfectly flavours toovar dal together with a combination of other ingredients like tomatoes and onions.

A traditional tempering adds punch to this peppy dal, which is a must-try during the spring season when green garlic is available.
