Dal Pakwan

12:18 Niloufer Riyaz 8 Comments

Saw this dish in a cookery show n noted down in my dairy, it was something different dal with Crisp puris. Made today for dinner n it was very tasty. It was like chjps n dip. You have to dip the puris in dal n eat. After I made this It was like the colour of sunshine, yellow coloured dhal surrounded by yellow colured puris. I dont like cooking dal in  pressure cooker coz it makes them very mushy. Cooking  them in a pan gives me the perfect dhals, softly cooked but not mushy. Sending it to Suma's delicious dhals n to CWS- Cumin Seeds event guest hosted by Sara event by Priya
