Red Lentil With Garlic Tadka

RED LENTIL WITH GARLIC TADKA

Hi guys. I am back welcoming you to my site again. In our everyday cooking plan for the lunch menu people in India usually make rice, dal, and curries,sautéed or stir-fried vegetables as a staple platter. I too personally make the same and amongst dals and veggies, I make varieties of both of them. In dals, I make rajma ki dal, methi dal, dal tadka, lemony dal, hing waali dal and many others. Today I decided to make another variation of dal, red lentils with a garlicky or ‘lehsuni tadka’. It will be a welcome change from your regular experience of eating dals and I am sure will be liked by one and all. So friends let’s start with its making—-

  3. Asafoetida-A pinch.
