Some of my all time dishes are some of the easiest dishes, but very satisfying, home made with the most modest of ingredients. And some days just call for these favourite comfort foods. I am the happiest when I can sip on hot Tadka Dal topped with fresh coriander and a spoon of ghee(clarified butter). My Tadka Dal recipe is super easy and rather comforting!
Dal is such a staple in Indian cuisine. And there is no one single recipe of dal, Every region of India has its own version of the dal. Some made with vegetables like drumsticks and shallots, some with a mix of lentils and some with a different type of tempering. Trust me when I say there are so many different types of dals. Dal is protein rich and this tadka dal recipe is vegan.
My favourite is the Tadka Dal made with moong dalor split green geam. Moong dal is easily available in the Indian stores or these days in most supermarkets in the World Foods aisle. Moong dal is perfect for everyday meals because it is easy to digest unlike other dals. Dal goes well with steamed white rice with a dollop of ghee or alongside roti and vegetable curries.
