I fell in love with 'daal fry' when I first tasted it at a restaurant. A big bowl of daal fry with little butter on top and few slices of naan .. very simple equation to make me happy. Yes, you read it right .. no need of nonveg stuff with this kind of blissful meal. In India, I never had daal fry at home, always in restaurant. But time flies so quickly. Now I can make it by myself. I have used only 'toor daal', you can use half 'masoor' and half 'toor' also. Try this in your kitchen and enjoy a lovely dinner with your family.
