If you wish to pamper yourself, there is no better way than to cook yourself some luxuriant Moghlai food! Moghlai cuisine is generally quite rich, with abundant use of spices and dairy products like ghee, cream and butter.

However, we have given the classic Dal Moghlai a healthy twist, so that you can pamper yourself without any guilt.

This wonderfully healthy recipe hardly uses any fat, and lets you enjoy the richness of Moghlai food and the goodness of toovar and chana dal without being burdened by extra calories.

Both dals are rich in protein and fibre, while being heart and diabetic friendly too. Additionally, toovar dal is rich in folic acid and is a great choice for pregnant women to include in their daily diet.

Chana dal has a good amount of potassium and low amount of sodium, which makes it effective in regulating blood pressure.

The Dal Moghlai also uses veggies, which further boost the nutrition profile and add to the taste too. Enjoy this yummy dal hot and fresh!
