Panchmel Dal (five Lentil Curry)
Mostly prepared in North India, the Panchmel Dal is an abstract mix of five lentils and is an enormous source of protein. I am going to present its Rajasthani version, which is typically partnered with Baatis (baked hard & round wheat breads), but also tastes great with rotis, paranthas, naan, rice, etc. However, it is traditionally prepared with whole spices and ghee. But in some parts of the state, its procedure is bit simplified and healthier, which I will be sharing as I love spices in a balanced way.
