The Panchratni Dal is a real ratan or gem from Indian cooking! It has many interesting qualities, which make it appeal to almost everybody. This traditional recipe combines five pulses, ranging from moong to toovar, which gives it a unique texture. Combined with tomatoes, onions, an assortment of spice powders and seeds, the five dals transform into a really mouth-watering treat.

Here, we have opted to Pressure cook the dals along with the other flavour-enhancing ingredients. This not only reduces the cooking time, but also ensures that the flavours fuse with the dals, giving excellent results. A dash of curds added at the end of the cooking procedure improves the texture of the dal and also imparts a nice tang to the Panchratni Dal, making it even tastier.

Panchratni Dal teams up well with Rice and Rotis as well.
