This recipe proves the fact that dal can be super tasty without being spicy. A mixture of three dals is perked up with tomatoes, onions and other ingredients, which give it a fabulous flavour.

Since spicy meals trigger and aggravate Acidity , this Mixed Dal uses very little green chillies for spice.

However, the chillies are not missed at all, because ingredients like ginger, coriander and cumin seeds impart more than enough flavour to delight the palate!
