Chana dal has a somewhat rustic but very satiating texture, flavour and aroma compared to other dals, and if used properly, it can turn into a brilliant accompaniment, as in the case of this Spicy Sindhi Dal. Smartly flavoured with everyday ingredients like green chillies and onions, this dal gets its intense taste from a combination of readily available spice powders and a dash of lime juice as well. Serve hot with a bowl of steaming rice or phulkas.

Chana dal tastes great when cooked with tomatoes and simmered with spices. The mouth feel of chana dal is always good. My daughters loved it and had 3 helpings.
