Dal Papad

Today is the last day of 2nd group In Blogging Marathon 20 Under theme of “Delicious Dal”… So tried something different with dal…. that is “Dal Papad”.
Under this recipe of Dal Papad, I used tuvar or split yellow pigeon peas lentils, add some spices and onion tempering bole to Tadka… with unique combo of fried papad.
It’s really tasty and all ingredients are easily available in our day to day kitchen.
It’s accomplished with tandoori roti…… which increase taste of this dal with some spicy onion salad.
