Dal Tadka is a popular Indian dish where cooked lentils are tempered with oil/ghee and spices. It isn’t a South Indian dish. However, dal tadka is a favorite for one and all. Dal/Lentils is one of our staple foods and there are many different varieties available in our country, the popular ones being Dal Tadka and Dal Makhani.
Dal Tadka is usually made with yellow lentils. I usually take a mix of Split Bengal Gram(Chana Dal) and Split Red Gram(Tuvar Dal), in the ratio 1:2. You can use only one of these instead. The preparation can be divided into two stages.
- cook the dal
Dal Tadka goes well with rotis, chapatis and rice, be it steamed rice or jeera rice.
