Toovar dal has a knack of combining well with greens, providing the right mushiness without becoming gooey. Here, palak and toovar dal come together, smartly pressure-cooked and hand-blended to the right consistency. A couple of whole spices added as a tempering impart a fresh aroma and irresistible flavour to the Palak Toovar Dal.
