Looking for the best and most popular healthy dal recipes? Here is my collection of 20+ Indian Dhal recipes including tadka dal, dal makhani, moong dal, and more. Perfect for lunch, or dinner.
Indian cuisine is incomplete without the humble bowl of dal. In fact, it is a staple in almost every Indian household. The best part? You can make it in a variety of ways. For instance, the simple dal tadka to an elaborate dal makhani, panchratna dal, and more.
No matter which dhal recipe you choose to eat, it is sure to be delicious and nothing else! If you ask me what is my favorite version of dal then I will vote for the humble bowl of arhar dal. It is not only delicious but also very nutritious and making it at home is quite a cakewalk too. All you need are a few basic kitchen essentials and 15-20 minutes in hand.
Not only me but my kids also enjoy having dal with jeera rice or perfectly steamed plain rice. From tur dal to masoor dal, chana dal, and more, you can use any dal according to your preference.
