Indian Dal and Kadhi Recipes | Easy Dal Recipe Collection | Delicious Kadhi Recipes for Everyday Meals | Dals and Kadhis are side-dishes without which an Indian meal never seems complete! They balance a cereal-based meal in terms of nutrition and flavour, making it more satisfying in all respects. Be it a Sambhar or More Kuzhambu from south India or a Panchmel Dal or Pakoda Kadhi from the north, these are indispensable parts of a traditional meal! Dals are made of pulses or lentils while Kadhi is made of curds. Both rely on tempering for their exquisite flavour, and both categories can be enhanced by adding vegetables and spices. Here we show you some exciting ways in which Dals and Kadhis can be prepared…

Traditional Punjabi Dal Recipes

The Dal Tadka is one of the most popular dals while eating out at Indian restaurants and even roadside dhabas. Punjabi Dal Tadka is made from 2 different kinds of dals, chana dal and toovar dal which are first pressure cooked with water, salt, turmeric, ginger, garlic and green chillies. Then the vegetables are cooked in oil with the dal and then the ghee tempering with spices is added to this Restaurant style Dal Tadka.

Amritsari dal, as the name suggests is a dal from the city of Amritsar in North India. Prepared with whole black lentils or whole urad, this Punjabi Amritsari dal is ready in a jiffy when cooked in a pressure cooker, without compromising on the taste. Dal Amritsari makes a protein rich dish as both, chana dal and urad dal are rich in protein.

North-indian cuisine is wholesome and rich with generous use of dairy products. Be it their sabzis, dal or desserts, everything is simply delicious and finger-licking good! So, we have got you a super luscious recipe Dal amritsari also known as langarwali dal.

Gujarati Dal Recipes

With a characteristic sweet and sour taste, this traditional Gujarati dal recipe is quite reflective of Gujarati culture and uses the typical ingredients and spices. While Gujarati toovar dal is an everyday dal, it takes on a festive hue when ingredients like peanuts and yam are added to toor dal. For such grand occasions, the Gujarati tuvar dal is boiled over and over again to get the best flavour.

Varan is a famous Maharashtrian dish of lentil curry. The toovar dal is prepared in a simple and homely manner that will appeal to everybody. Onions, tomatoes, green chillies and spices add to the flavour to the toovar dal varan making it a perfect accompaniment to cooked rice. Serve this satiating Maharashtrian varan bhaat hot and fresh, without forgetting the dollop of ghee!

Famous Indian Kadhi Recipes

Kadhi is a traditional Gujarati preparation of a wonderful sweet and spicy curd mixture thickened with besan (gram flour), which can be enhanced in many ways using other ingredients like pakoras and koftas. Remember never to boil the kadhi on a high flame as it tends to curdle. If you want your traditional gujarati kadhi thick, then add more besan or reduce the quantity of water. It’s really a personal choice of how to make gujarati kadhi! A little sugar is added to the gujarati kadhi to give a sweet and sour taste.

Punjabi pakora kadhi is made with freshly prepared pakodis of besan perked up with coriander, green chillies and these pakodis are floated in a mouth-watering kadhi. The Punjabi pakora kadhi is quite richly flavoured with an assortment of spices ranging from cloves and cinnamon to fenugreek and coriander seeds, and the pakoras are an added attraction that make the kadhi pakora thoroughly irresistible!

Make sure you simmer the Punjabi pakoda kadhi for just a minute or two after adding the pakodas so that they absorb the flavours but do not become soggy.
