Not very spicy but super tasty, the Masala Toovar Dal is a homely Maharashtrian dish that goes very well with roti or steamed rice .
Here, cooked toovar dal is flavoured with a paste of garlic, red chillies and other aromatic seeds like coriander and cumin. Onions sautéed in ghee give the dal a nice crunch and pungent touch, while tomato shares its beautiful tang. Enjoy this Maharashtrian delicacy hot and fresh.
