Lauki Chana Dal (bottle Gourd & Split Bengal Gram Curry)
Generally, at my home, we are habitual of eating a dal preparation once every day. So every day it needs to be different not only in terms of dal type but also in taste. The lentils are highly nutritious and being vegetarians, the only source of high protein we find in, is dal. My family does not actually, have a liking for bottle gourd but since it is good for health, the best way I found to include this vegetable in their diet, is in the form of Lauki Chana Dal. I have done numerous experiments by changing many ingredients to make this dal and I finally concluded that Lauki Chana is best prepared without onion and garlic. So I expect that even satvik diet followers will also like this spicy dal.
