Chana Dal Curry Recipe – Chana Dal Fry Recipe with step wise pictures.
Chana dal fry or curry pairs great with roti or poori. I served it with luchi and it was amazing. Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
This dal is one of my favorite. I love having it with plain white rice or roti. This dal is so delicious, it has a spicy flavour. The seasoning has to be done in ghee which gives pure aroma and taste to it. You can enjoy this dal as it is too.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
