In the case of this dish, the 'tarka' is prepared separately and then combined with the lentils. Enjoyed in Indian homes the world over, there are many variations and cooking methods worth trying. Perfect with some chapatis or rice.
Serve with dhay/yogurt/raita and a chapati or rice.
Did this with Pakoras and Chilli Paneer for family. Interesting and tasty alternative for our family veggie night. Really easy and most of the items were in the cupboard. - 10 Mar 2017
