This simple dal made with toovar and masoor dals is transformed when curds and cream are added to it. The curds provides the right amount of tanginess. Dals were made by the mughals by simering them over a slow flame for hours together, however we the recipe provided makes use of the pressure cooker that speeds up the preparation considerably.
