One pot Dal

Dal is that quintessential dish in every Indian kitchen. Usually every family has their own unique spin on a dal recipe and this one is one where all the ingredients for the tadka and the ‘bagar’ is cooked together with the dal.

Here I am using equal parts of the pro nature 5 in one dal alongwith regular moong dal for the meal to be a little more nutritious.

Dal recipe

Wash and soak dal and keep aside. Then cut 2 medium onions, 1 tomato, 10 cloves of garlic, 1 inch piece of ginger and 2 green chillies. You can add less or keep the chilies whole without cutting them if you don’t like the spice
