The vegetables add a contrasting texture to the dals. It is amazing to see how common ingredients can be combined to make a unique dal like restaurant style Mughlai dal which can be served with both chapati and steamed rice.

Tips for dal Mughlai. 1. Taste the dal before adding more salt. 2. Prefer to whisk the dal coarsely to enjoy a good mouthfeel. 3. For a non-Jain version, avoid adding the onions and garlic. It will taste equally good.

This Dal Moghlai recipe is just so different, I love the use of so much of doodhi in this recipe and when tempered in ghee the taste of this dal was just awesome, I ate this with jeera rice and papad and relished my meal.
