Trevti Dal/ Tadka Dal

Today I posted “Trevti Dal” under the On-going BM# 20, Delicious Dal Theme. Under this recipe, combine three lentils together and add some fried golden onion for little tadka taste.
For wonderful presentation, I add red chilli tempering in this dal, normally we know this dal by the name of Mix Dal or Tadka Dal or तीनमेल दाल…… But after surfing on net, I get this name which really hit me…
You can serve this dal with any stuff Indian bread or steam rice…. Trevti Dal Which is very good for healthy and easy option for lunch or dinner time.
