As you will see from this recipe, exotic dal recipes can be prepared authentically without using onions or ginger, which are often considered by many as must-have ingredients for a dal-based dish. In this traditional recipe, five wholesome dals are used together with whole spices, tangy tamarind and a unique masala water to make a tongue-tickling dish! Dissolving the spice powders in water before sautéing them with the tempering ensures that the spices get uniformly mixed, and also gives a strong aroma to the dish. Enjoy the Panchmel Dal hot and fresh with your favourite roti.
