Vasanthi, I really like the daals you make when we visit. I will be making all of these daal recipes. I already make your toor daal, your palak daal with chilke wala urad and your simple masoor daal recipes regularly.

I tried this recipe. Its so simple and so delicious. I made it on a chilly day and we had it piping hot with chopped red onions and chillies and plain rice. Not even one drop of daal was left. If you follow the exact recipe, it serves 3 people generously if the menu is just daal, rice and a subzi or salad
