Think dal and the first thing that comes to mind is mother’s cooking.
While moms are generally fond of pampering their children with oodles of ghee and butter, we must learn to tone down on these fatty ingredients as we grow up! So, here a fatless version of Maa ki Dal, which not only retains the same love and care, but traditional flavour too! This recipe stays away from high fat butter and cream, and uses low-fat curds to recreate the same rich texture. Enjoy this potassium rich Fatless Maa ki Dal steaming hot with whole wheat phulkas or rice.

Taste does not indicate the absence of fat. It's a tasty alternative to the fat laden traditional recipe.
