MW Spicy Masoor Dhal with Corn

14:05 Niloufer Riyaz 21 Comments

This is the first time Im making Dhal in Microwave, n I got it right, Was having a packet of Masoor Dhal n Didnt known what to do, used some to make out adai, but didnt know what do. When Priya Of Mharo Rajasthan Recipes posted Masala Masooor Dal I thought why not give it a try. Usually I try to add in many vegetables in my Dhals to make it more healthier . Since this was microwave version I thought why not add frozern Sweet corns. The dhal turned out to be a delicasy. I myself couldnt resist eating the dhal. Also added a few peas for colour. We had this dhal with chappati n Veg Kurma n we really enjoyed this for dinner.

Hi, the problem seems to be that there is a black bar saying Home|Events|Awards|About Me|Veg|Non Veg|Sweets|Bake|Beverage
and instead of being at the top of the page, it is in the middle where it is blocking one line of your post, the one with the original recipe link.

Please let me know exactly which recipe you used (the link), since I can't see it here on your post because of the black bar.
