There are numerous recipes for Dal tadka but I love this simple dal . This dal is very simple and i would say is a comfort food. Hot dal  can be served with roti or rice and it equally tastes good. The necessary protein for a vegetarian can be had by eating this dal tadka. I have used arhar dal or tuvar dal and bengal gram dal.

We can change the quantities and add massor dal, and moong dal too. By varying the quantity of the dal used, we can change the flavour and taste ina subtle way. Flavoring agents like kasoori methi , coriander is again left to your choice.
