Using whole masoor instead of the dal helps retain more fibre you your food. This protein and fibre-rich dal also features a spiky spice paste, which makes it very attractive to the desi palate!

The whole masoor dal is ideal for those with high cholesterol as the fibre in the dal binds the cholesterol and eliminates it from the body. In all a good choice in terms of flavour and nutrition.

Serve this dal with rice, but it pairs of well rotis and parathas too.

A delicious low calorie dal! As it is masoor tastes brilliant to which shallots enhance the taste. I added the shallots to the cooker after two whistles and allowed the shallots to cook only for one whistle, to enjoy whole shallots.

Pressure cooked whole masoor dal with tomatoes and onions taste great. Its rich in taste. Nothing like the aroma of masoor dal.
