This wholesome combination of three lentils, flavoured with an assortment of spices, is a good source of calcium and protein for the mom-to-be.
Green chillies, ginger and garlic contribute their heady flavours to this sumptuous dal, while a tempering of whole spices and seeds adds to the aroma and taste. Relish the Teen Ratna Dal with rotis of your choice.
