This is one lip-smacking dal for sure! Cooked with onions, perked up with tomatoes, and spiced with a pungent masala paste, masoor transforms into a sumptuous accompaniment that goes with any main course be it rice , rotis or puri !

Masala Masoor is perfect for parties and special events, when serving simple dals will not be appropriate, or on days when you have time to make just one accompaniment but would like it to be a tad extraordinary so the absence of more dishes is not felt.

The masoor pressure cooked with the onions lend a special flavour to the dal besides the masalas.

You can't go wrong with this recipe. Masoor tastes so rich when cooked in this way.
