Star Rating WIDGET PACK

Lehsuni Daal Tadka is a spicy toor lentil preparation which has a very flavorful garlicky tempering. This daal tadka goes best with plain chapati or rice. The recipe is very simple and easy. I usually make this lehsuni daal during winter as it tastes so good and seems comfort in a bowl in those chilly afternoons or nights. Try this in your kitchen and let me know how it turned out for you.
