Great taste without oil! If that’s hard to believe, just try this recipe first. This Khatti Meethi Dal features a very different combination of ingredients. You might never have tried adding roasted beaten rice to a dal recipe, but you will be amazed by the brilliant texture and flavour that it gives.
Likewise, kokum gives its distinctive sourness to the recipe, while radish boosts the flavour and aroma. This unique assortment of ingredients not only gives the Sweet and SourZero Oil Dal a wonderful flavour, but also a good deal of fibre and iron.
