This lentil soup is one of the traditional food in Bengal. Last weekend I had two fish heads in my fridge. I am personally not too much fond of plain fish head curry. So, I made this dish and it came out really perfect like 'biyebari'. In most of the bengali wedding this dish is must for lunch and everybody loves it. I ate the home made version of this daal twice from my mom. Those times I really didn't find difference because she made it so tasty and this time 'he' didn't find any difference ?. Lets see how I made this 'daal' and don't forget to try it in your kitchen.
