Masoor Dal cooked with lots of greens and just the right amount of spices, this Hariyali Dal is ideal for those with acidity .

A simple paste of minimal, everyday ingredients turns out to be so effective in flavouring this dal, that you cannot help licking your fingers!

A dash of amchur together with the tang of tomatoes gives the Hariyali Dal a really tempting taste. Enjoy it hot and fresh.
